RESTORATION este un film exceptional, jucat de o pleiada de mari actori,  c ene spune povestea unui doctor din Londra lui Charles al doilea.

Fastuos, tragic, o impletire de viata si moarte, iubire si nebunie, sex si puritate, cu o muzica baroca splendida ca fundal,  RESTORATION este unul dintre cele mai bune filme(chiar daca este din 1995) pe care le-am vazut in ultimul timp. (Imi aduce aminte ca scenografie de LE ROI DANSE)


Cartea dupa care a fost realizat filmul are si o urmare, Merivel, despre care puteti citi aici.

'Robert Downey jr, David Thewlis, Meg Rytrean, Sam Neil, Hugh Grant, Polly Walker(din ROME), Ian McKellen (Gandalf) sint citiva dintre actorii geniali ce au dat stralucire acestui film


Restoration is a 1995 American historical drama film directed by Michael Hoffman. It stars Robert Downey Jr. as a 17th century medical student exploited by a debauched king. The film is based on the novel of the same title by Rose Tremain. It won two Academy Awards.[1]

About the book by Rose Tremain and its sequel, HERE

An aspiring young physician, Robert Merivel found himself in the service of King Charles II and saves the life of a spaniel dear to the King. Merivel joins the King's court and lives the high life provided to someone of his position. 
Merivel is ordered to marry one of the King's mistresses in order to divert the suspicions of another one of his mistresses. He is given one order by the king and that is not to fall in love. The situation worsens when Merivel finds himself in love with his new wife. 
Eventually, the King finds out and relieves Merivel of his position and wealth. His fall from grace leaves Merivel where he first started. 
And through his travels and reunions with an old friend, he rediscovers his love for true medicine and what it really means to be a physician. Written by P. Wong
