This was a well acted but not a well written film. The piece was beautifully filmed. Nothing in the situation is plausible. The Doctor's involvement with strangers in a foreign country is very unrealistic. His intrusive behavior that gets him into a huge amount of trouble is too convenient. His flight from authority could never happen. The unrealistic way he finally got out of trouble and the very poor ending leaves you wanting more. A huge loose end because his actions will get him back into trouble in a huge way. This film had promise but ultimately poor writing and story could not overcome the good acting, beautiful cinematography and exotic locations. I wonder how such films attract financing, production and distribution.
