A doctor gets robbed and forgets who he is. He is accepted at a nearby village but soon his medical knowledge resurfaces.
30 March 2006 | by marta5See all my reviews

This film is excellent for its plot and message but an even better version of it is a black and white oldie made before the WWII!! This version follows the original plot which is what is so good about the movie and it keeps the viewer interested in how the story will unfold and who will win in the end; however, the black and white version is better because it is far more dramatic. Besides the timing, of filming the movie, being closer to a time when such a story could have taken place, the very format of old film-making gives it this strange old feel that this could have really happened. The black and white colors suits this story very well and the acting is excellent. I saw this film first when I was 10, then 12 and now at 27 I still love it.
