ER + Scrubs + British humor = potential combination (not to?) describe this movie
12 April 2004 | by (Cba, Brasil) – See all my reviews

TV series about medicine, interns and/or paramedics are common on Tv nowadays. Films about it are not exactly like that. This uncommon experimentation is made on this production, with an ambiguous, sadistic, tragicomic script, centering on a neurosurgeon doctor's routine. It's been quite a long time since I've seen this film on HBO, and I don't regret of that. It's nice watching some fresh, unpredictable stuff once in a while. The plot is cleverly INtense, NOT tense and filled with medical clichés and jargons, as it can be presumed at first, though. We can see here a more honest, fluid point of view about the banalization of human life within such work environments, far away of being explored by north-american productions about delicate themes such as health issues. So to say: a more human -- limitated as it is implicited -- role. I assure that moralistic, pretensiosly romanced approachs so widely used by Warner Bros. and its cheesy, predictable TV series, for instance, are happily avoided by a less hipocrite european insight of humor. Using my comparison above, that I've used only for an easier analogy, Hospital! is like a Scrubs without immature interns and naive, dissociated life lessons, plus an ER without semigod doctors and tasteless script.
