The Physician will close the Festival!

We’d like to announce the selection of the Closing Film of this year’s Febiofest. After considering a wide range of films, we’ve chosen an epic film, The Physician starring Ben Kingsley and Stellan Skarsgård.

The Physician is a magnificent adaptation of the novel by Noah Gordon, and directed by Philipp Stölzl. The movie takes place in the 11th century and tells the story of Rob Cole, who can sense when someone is about to die. After the death of his parents, Rob becomes apprenticed to an itinerant barber surgeon.

Rob's desire to learn as much about the craft as he can eventually takes him from the small villages in England to a medical school in Isaphan. The German epic narrative is often compared to the classics of the genre, such as, Lawrence of Arabia or The English Patient .

The farewell reception of IFF Prague Febiofest 2014 will be held at the historic Michna Palace.
