It is in this web of intrigue that they head for China, only after Walter discovers Kitty’s infidelity with one dashing and witty diplomat Charlie Townsend. So much as to hide her from herself and to help thwart a cholera outbreak, this is a marriage more than on the rocks. This is a cold, indifferent and loveless partnership in a vast unknown and deadly environment that will test both these flightless lovebirds and with the hardships and tolerances more than any had ever anticipated. A visual delight amid the pain and suffering of a dying people and failing marriage. Will a cure be found for both, before it’s too late?
Plot: A British medical doctor fights a cholera outbreak in a small Chinese village, while also being trapped at home in a loveless marriage to an unfaithful wife.

A complex, moody film that draws you in on many levels and does not let go
Set in China in the 1920s during a cholera epidemic and the nationalist uprising, the film explores the stormy relationship of a dry British doctor and his seemingly incompatible fun-loving wife. They interact with engaging characters that include French nuns, British expatriates and a Chinese doctor and military officer. The tension is increased by the ever-present threat of death from the epidemic and the political and military unrest that is about to explode. The film is shot with a hazy green look that makes the lush Chinese countryside even more mysterious and beautiful. The film is accompanied by well-chosen music with a particularly gripping main theme by Satie. Norton and Watts do a splendid job in the leading roles.
I saw it four days ago, and I can’t stop thinking about it
I went to an afternoon showing of this film at the behest of a friend. Although I saw it four days ago, I still feel this sinking in the pit of my stomach every time I think of it. Edward Norton’s character Walter really came alive on the screen (and the accent sounded flawless to me). He seems at first one-dimensional, but then he becomes, to his own disdain, more three-dimensional due to his wife’s actions. He pads through life, studying that which takes life (bacteria and disease) instead of living life. Yet, he finds it is that which surrounds you, whether the culture, disease, or your wife, which matters in the end. Naomi Watts’ character Kitty goes in the opposite arc: from out and about to understanding that it is what is unseen and not tangible that is important,such as love, friendship, and duty and obligation.
I haven’t seen a film that has impacted me like this for a very long time. I think the last one was “Empire of the Sun” when I was 11 or so.
I highly recommend this film!
