Product Notes

What is it like to have God like surgical powers yet to struggle against your own humanity? What is it like to try and save a life and yet to fail? Shot in a Ukrainian hospital full of desperate patients and makeshift equipment "The English Surgeon " is an intimate portrait of brain surgeon Henry Marsh as he wrestles with the dilemmas of the doctor patient relationship. It's like selling your soul to the devil but what can you do? My son had a brain tumor as a baby and I was desperate for someone to help me. I simply can't walk away from that need in others" with an original soundtrack by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis "The English Surgeon" openly confronts moral and ethical issues which touch every one of us.
