My Brother Jonathan is a 1985 BBC five part mini-series that relates the story of an idealistic doctor, Jonathan Dakkers, in the coal country of England during the period around WW1 and a love triangle.
Famous film director Guido Contini struggles to find harmony in his professional and personal lives, as he engages in dramatic relationships with his wife, his mistress, his muse, his agent, and his mother.
Traveling dentist O'Connell traverses South America on his motorcycle for the 'Eversmile' foundation of New Jersey, in a fight not only against caries, but also against fear, ignorance, indifference - and established antediluvian dentists. During a stop at a lonesome garage he meets Estella, who is supposed to marry a few days later. However she'd rather come with him - to meet a former boyfriend in another town, she says. Expecting problems, he refuses to take her, but she tricks him into it and then tries hard to convince him of her qualities and let her stay with him.Written by

After the director's first cut, the producers took over the film and re-edited it, changing also the entire soundtrack (including sound and music score). The outcome was far away from the original concept on which the film was shot. See more »

This Film is very original, with a highly unique character: a travelling dentist, played perfectly by Daniel Day-Lewis in One of His best roles, and yet not talked about much. The kind of humor we have here is not everyone's cup of tea, but if you enjoy nonsensical, surrealistic stories depicted with lots of passion and an underlying philosophical message, this might Just be your dish.
Directed by the great Carlos Sorin, this is an unforgettable cinematic experience. Save it for a day when you crave for something different. But be opened for the surprise, this is not a conventional Story by any means. This is a masterfully accomplished work of art that sustains itself Pretty much on it's own universe. Certainly, One the strangest road movies ever made. And an absolute must-see for Day-Lewis fans. 10/10.
