5.0 out of 5 stars There is no such thing as a simple miracle., 23 Jun 2007
This review is from: Awakenings [DVD] [1991] (DVD)
Put in two great Hollywood actors; Robin Williams and Robert de Niro; A superb director, a great book by Oliver Sacks and the end product is a sure winner. Williams takes a break from being rebellious and wacky like the characters he played in Dead Poets Soceity, Good Morning Vietnam and PAtch Adams to play Dr Sayer a non- wacky doctor but rebellious anywhere due to jealous colleagues. De Niro plays Leonard Lowe his patient reduced to a catatonic state due to some condition known as encephalitis. His transformation to normality and back to his original state is one of his best performances ever. The ending is a tear jerker, and may make this film a one off viewing experience. Nevertheless, highly recommended.
