The English Patient is a 1996 movie directed by Anthony Minghella. Egypt, shortly before World War II: Hungarian Count László Almásy explores the desert as a member of the English Royal Geographic Society to create maps for the research projects of geographers and archaeologists. When he crashes his plane, he is picked up by an English convoy and nursed by the French Red Cross nurse Hana. Almásy barely survived the crash; his body, face burned beyond recognition, his internal organs badly affected. Almásy also suffers from amnesia. Hana decides to leave the convoy with Almásy in order to care for him in peace. They both settle down in a ruined monastery in Tuscany. They are joined by two close friends, British Army bomb disposal experts: the Sikh Kip and Hardy. Finally, the mysterious Caravaggio appears in the ruins, and Almásy meets him with suspicion, without Hana initially knowing why.
