Movie synopsis: The Physician is an adaptation of Noah Gordon's eponymous novel whose story is set in the 11th century. Rob Cole has a very special power: He is able to sense when somebody is about to die. After both his parents pass away, a wandering physician takes Rob in. The boy becomes his apprentice during their journeys. Rob's desire to learn as much as possible about this profession leads him from Constantinople to Persia, where he attempts to enter a medical school. In the end, his acceptance is ensured only by his meeting with the Persian Shah. This epic German film is often compared to such iconic films of the genre as Lawrence of Arabia or The English Patient. CLOSING FILM OF THE FESTIVAL.
