There are so many moving moments in this film, as well as humorous scenes involving the banter between Henry and Igor. After minimal retooling and tuning, they use discarded tools and equipment that Henry brings over from the UK. I loved watching Henry and Igor geek out over recycled surgical equipment.
While the film focuses on Henry, Igor is the full-time hero in their longtime collaboration. Kurilets is an innovator trying to survive in a medical system that values uniformity and collectivism.
