Behind the Lines (1997)
"Jonathan Pryce (Tomorrow Never Dies, Evita, The Age of Innocence) stars in this critically acclaimed, emotionally electrifying story of war's devastating impact on a group of World War I soldiers -- and on the doctor who risks his own grip on reality to treat them. Dr. William Rivers (Pryce) is a psychiatrist in a moral straightjacket. At a respected Scottish asylum, he heals shell- shocked soldiers...so he can reluctantly send them back to the unspeakable carnage of the European trenches. Then he encounters an intriguingly different kind of patient. Siegfried (James Wilby) is a brilliant, courageous war hero sent to the asylum for publishing an outspoken anti-war pamphlet. As Rivers and Siegfried each struggle to cope with memories of the war's nightmarish brutality, the line between patient and doctor begins to blur. Now the fight for sanity in the midst of an insane conflict becomes the most desperate life-and-death battle of all." [Description from the cassette box] Based on the novel by Pat Barker and the Screenplay by Allan Scott.
