Best of Men: Towards the end of the second world war Dr Luis Guttmann,a brisk refugee from Nazi Germany,arrives at Stoke Mandeville hospital and is appalled to find the partially paralysed spinal patients heavily sedated and left to rot with bed sores. He immediately begins a new regime,disposing of old equipment and sedatives, bringing him into conflict with stern Sister Edwards and pompous consultant Cowan,as well as the patients. However the sister backs him when she realises he is treating her charges as people,not patients,talking to them and involving them in musical entertainments and sporting activity. Soon Whitehall are sending him all their spinal patients and,with visits to the pub and wheelchair sports taught by an army sergeant,he becomes the men's hero. With the war over Ludwig organizes national wheelchair sports competitions which will in turn lead to the establishment of the Paralympic games. An end title informs that in 1966,now a British citizen,Dr Guttmann was deservedly knighted for his part in bringing hope to the hopeless.

Bravo! What a good movie - just what the doctor ordered. Good acting, great story line. 5/5

Wow! What a man! Often times people with vision and progressive thinking are fought by ignorance and jealousy. The doctor that changed the world by telling doctors to wash their hands between surgeries and patients visits was shunned and lived and died in seclusion. But in the end we are thankful for them and their vision.

What an inspiration! Out of all the things I have read, I never knew about the origin of the Paralympics! And Eddie Marsan with a spot on German accent! A must watch if you are down and out.

A movie that reminds everyone of us that we are all equal and all deserve a chance to carry on with our lives, even if it looks very slim. In short, it's a beautiful movie with a message we should never forget...
