Brute Details


[[Performer~P264698~Meciej Dejczer~meciejdejczer]] directed this German-French-Polish period drama made with English dialogue. British prisoner Gerry, aka Brute ([[Performer~P197760~Til Schweiger~tilschweiger]]) is sent away to complete his sentence in a rundown Romanian orphanage run by sinister Sincal ([[Performer~P57436~Pete Postlethwaite~petepostlethwaite]]), who profits by selling children and other evil activities. Crude operations are executed on patients by alcoholic surgeon Dr. Babits ([[Performer~P34099~John Hurt~johnhurt]]), who plays the violin. On the brighter side, a nubile nurse Mara ([[Performer~P74289~Polly Walker~pollywalker]]) is on the staff of this insidious institution, and she enters into an affair with Brute. Shown at the 1998 Montreal World Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
