Like his mother, Ciel is a born caregiver, whose love of music, magic and new age mysticism is in large part a way to provide his mother love and protection, especially against her illness.

Toronto International Film Festival HIT
7 September 2008 | by iveningerSee all my reviews

The Buzz is on for NURSE.FIGHTER.BOY. Enchanting. Exquisite Performances. Fantastic soundtrack. Assured. Personal. Magical. Heartfelt. Daring. Unique. Gorgeously crafted feature-directing debut. NURSE.FIGHTER.BOY explores the connections between the healer, the warrior and the child with lyricism, style and stunning cinematography. The Toronto International Programmer Jesse Wente says the film "touches upon themes of faith and destiny while remaining unabashedly romantic". Jennie Punter from The Globe and Mail says, "One of the most beautiful and accomplished films to come out of the Canadian Film Centre". NURSE.FIGHTER.BOY is Charles Officer's coming out party as Canada's most visionary filmmaker... and what a party it is!
