Rather boring drama romance with Naomi Watts and Edward Norton who plays a loving husband and doctor who volunteers to go to the central China to help treat its growing epidemic of cholera in the beginning of a century.

Nice looking, but boring. Plus Edward Norton and Naomi Watts have terrible British accents.

Naomi Watts and Edward Norton are immensely gifted actors, and if not for their presence, the film would lose several points right off the top.

It is all very well made and shows a lot of heart but it feels like a sad attempt at a by-gone genre that was done so much better a few years ago in Far From Heaven. Naomi Watts and Edward Norton are both very good but they come off a little more nostalgic than realistic. The score and cinematography make it worth the price of admission if your in the mood for a beautiful, good old melodrama. Expand
