Bethune – Arzt und Held

1990

Bethune: The Making of a Hero is a 1990 Canadian biographical period drama film about the life and death of Dr. Norman Bethune, a Canadian-born physician who served as a combat surgeon during the Chinese Civil War. It was directed by Phillip Borsos, written by Ted Allan, and starred Donald Sutherland as Bethune, alongside Helen Mirren, Helen Shaver, Colm Feore, James Pax, Guo Da, Anouk Aimée, and Ronald Pickup.[1] It was nominated for numerous awards in 1991 and 1993.[2]

A rare Canadian epic, Bethune: The Making of a Hero is more famous for its arduous production in China (it was the first Canada-China co-production, and one of the first large-scale Western productions in that country) and the bickering between the star and the writer than for anything else. Right from the start Donald Sutherland and Ted Allan clashed over the interpretation of Bethune's legacy. Sutherland (who somewhat resembles Bethune) passionately believed that despite his drinking and womanizing, Bethune became a saintly hero in China, whereas Allan (who had served with Bethune in Spain) equally passionately believed he might have been a hero but remained a deeply flawed man until the end. Director Phillip Borsos was caught in the middle of these conflicting visions, and ultimately lost control of the film's direction during post-production. Despite these setbacks, the film was a critical and financial success, and was nominated for four Genie Awards, winning one for Best Costume Design.[3]
