I'm a doctor...and this was a good film
3 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

Being a doctor myself, I never have seen any really good doctor movies. This film in particular was very well made. The acting was top notch especially by Orlando bloom. He played the doctor really convincingly. I understood what must have been going on in his mind and what he must be going through living all alone without any relationships whatsoever which might have been difficult to relate by others who are not doctors by the way hence the low rating here.

I really liked how this film portrayed that how difficult it is being a doctor with a lot of responsibilities on them and a number of ethical issues considering doctor-patient relationships that has to be aware of.

Without giving anything away I will highly recommend this movie to doctors especially. For the rest of the people out there try putting yourself in a doctor's shoes...you will enjoy it!

8/10
