Goofs:
Miscellaneous: Rob is shown cutting ice from a block to place on Rebecca's head. There is no location from where the ice could have come that would have been easily available to the population (if at all). It would have taken a tremendous amount of ice, well insulated, in order to have survived any proposed journey from a snow covered mountain anywhere in the region. While there are snow covered mountains in the region (depending on time of year and geography), a solid ice block as depicted in the movie would have needed to be pulled from a glacier (or frozen lake/stream) which do not exist in the region.See more »
Quotes:
[first lines]
Barber:[performing for a crowd] Back and forth, up and down, left to right, for more than one hundred years. But nowhere have I had the pleasure of looking out upon a crowd with prettier girls than here in your wonderful Rough Dovender. Why do I specially like it here because... I always lay me best eggs here.

Well shot and acted, not very true to the original story., 24 August 2015
Author: alchemist-714-680589 from Masterton, New Zealand

While this movie is well acted and beautifully shot, there are so many departures from the original story that I couldn't help feeling a little let down. It's true that to include everything written by Noah Gordon would require a mini-series (which would have been a good idea) , there are a number of things that gave the story more depth that could easily have been included. An accurate account of where Rob J Cole was born would have been a good start.

Despite these omissions The Physician is still a good watch.

For those who question the truth of this title, it's fiction, total fiction.
