Modern-day Romeo and Juliet, beautifully filmed and wonderfully executed

 

From IMDB’s Top 5000 list, Beyond Borders (2003) is a compelling combination of romance, wonderful cinematography and great acting.

The ever-captivating Angelina Jolie, enraptured by a passionate plight from a third-world activist/doctor (Clive Owen), she decides to take a missions trip into the depth of Africa and learns of the harrowing existence of humanity at its most desperate.

Unable to shake the imprint that the trip and the doctor make on her, we see her on the path of self-examination and redemption that give a deliciously deep and action-packed movie.

Clive Owen brilliantly portrays the radical, ardent doctor who gives all to save the few that he can in the midst of seeing the throngs around him parish.

This movie is a wonderful portrayal of the frustrations faced by third-world organizations, an irresistible love story and breath-taking cinematography.
