Cécile de France,
An Iranian family survives the shah and the ayatollah and moves to France. This story follows the family through it all. Despite the politics, revolution, prison, beatings, assassinations and suicides this is a comedy.
Well I was expecting seeing a comedy with a bit of drama but instead it was a drama with a lot of mixed emotions. From laughter to tears, it's an emotional roller-coaster during the entire movie. The first part of the movie I kept thinking that it was well done but nothing more. But then I grew into the movie. The more the movie advanced the more I really liked Patients. I will gladly watch this movie again in the future. About everything is good in this movie, the soundtrack, the story, the cast, the photography, everything. Not only you get to watch from close by how hard it is to keep the moral high when you become a quadriplegic or another handicap. Some patients do everything they can to get better, other have just no hope or courage. It's not easy for anybody, from patient to caregiver. The movie made me think a lot, how fast our lives we're used to could turn. It made me realize even more that you should be thankful for every second you're in good health and to try to keep it that way. Enjoy life at the fullest while it's still possible. The cast was sublime to watch, every single character was well thought of and brought something special to the movie. A must watch if you ask me.
