Review, 26 April 2005
This film is a brilliant work of art. Set during the demise of communisms in Eastern Europe, a reluctant solider Elwood (Phoenix.) who has decided to make his money buy stealing from the army and selling to the mafia. Even managing to run his on drugs lab. Things are going fine until his new CO (Glenn) starts to crack down on the drugs. Elwood begins to date his CO daughter (Paquin.) Their relationship soon develops.
This film is well made with great performances by all, the characters work on many levels, ( which is a rare quality for a film these days. ) this film deserves all the credit received and takes pride and place amongst my DVD collection.
