Product Description

Sweden released, PAL/Region 0 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), Swedish ( Subtitles ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: The British-Argentine Eversmile New Jersey is the sort of film that seems to be destined from the beginning to be limited to PBS and art-festival showings. Daniel Day-Lewis stars as Fergus O'Connell, an itinerant American dentist, offering his services gratis to the rural Argentine populace. He is able to do this because of the supposedly no-strings sponsorship of a 'dental consciousness' foundation. While his motorbike is being repaired, O'Connell falls in love with Estela (Mirjana Jokovic), the garage-owner's daughter. Both lovers have prior commitment--he is married, she is engaged--but they go off together all the same. After a series of surrealistic adventures, O'Connell discovers that there's a subliminal price tag attached to his altruistic free services. ...Eversmile, New Jersey

Rating-wise, I'd say it's a below zero stars.
It's that bad really. On of the worst things I've ever seen, in every way. Strange, as on paper, both main actor and director are among the finest in cinema... but this one just didn't work out. Plot, pace, dialogues, the choice of doing it in English... everything about it is wrong, and at one point becomes quite repulsive.
No wonder it took about 10 years to director Sorin to get over it and start again. My advice is don't even consider this one, and go straight to the later Sorin (eg. the brilliant El Perro & Historias Minimas)!

HASH(0x948bbc00) out of 5 stars A satirical, funny, romantic sleeper 15 Dec. 2007
By Doc Holliday - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I bought the VHS copy years ago and continue to enjoy it. Yes, a definite must for Daniel Day Lewis fans. Zany? Sure, but this is also a satire on the human struggle of commitment vs. selling-out, somewhere between idealism and cynicism. Daniel Day Lewis' character (Fergus O'Connell) is arduously devoted to the principle and ethics of "mobile dentistry", bringing dental awareness and care to not only the needy, but to anyone, anywhere, anytime, for free and without discrimination. This, in fact, is the mission of the Foundation for the Development of Dental Consciousness, for whom he works. Mirjana Jokovic (Estella) who delightfully pronounces his name "Furrgoose" doesn't know what to make of this very odd guy whom, she too, comes to idealize and love. What can you say about a guy who constantly hands out free toothbrushes, pulls teeth with his fingers and whose motorcycle and sidecar is his dental office! Despite periods of rejection, struggle and betrayal, Estella and Fergus, eventually, fall in love. The cast, who are wonderful character actors give a performance in an almost ensemble style, and play it as straight as they can which only serves to heighten, the comedic effect. Personally, I believe we've all been there: We start out in our work (whether you're a cop, a priest, a nurse, a corrections officer or a teacher) or in many of our relationships with a typically, youthful and idealized passion and commitment. And then, in fairly short order, if we don't quit or burn out, and instead, choose to remain, we're often faced with having to accept a cynical surrender to conditions that are beyond our control. At the end of the film, (I won't give it away.), there's a very funny line by Daniel Day-Lewis in the shower with Mirjana that's worth the price of admission. The film is shot with beautiful vistas in what appears to be on location in Patagonia.

HASH(0x948bbe34) out of 5 stars Unique, memorable, excellent, puzzling 10 Jun. 2007
By Poor Yorick - Published on Amazon.com
This is one of my favorite movies of all time. It's so unexpected, so out-in-left-field, so off on a tangent, that the best way to watch this movie is to give up trying to make sense of it all and just enjoy each wonderfully absurd moment. Then let your brain work it over for a decade.
HASH(0x948be09c) out of 5 stars The poetry of emptiness 17 Aug. 2009
By Mitri Matte - Published on Amazon.com
This is unforgettable for its avatars of loneliness: for the vast emptiness of the Patagonian landscape, for the hero Fergus's single-minded devotion to his ambition, for its haunting solo Spanish guitar, for Daniel Day-Lewis's soulful rendering of an Irish folk song without musical accompaniment, and for Estella, the lovely cold-weather star of solitude. These forms of singleness are poetic expressions of a loneliness that must strike a chord in us all.

I first saw this at the 1986 Toronto Film Festival, and since then I think not a week has passed where I haven't thought about this film at least once. Thank you Carlos Sorin, Daniel Day-Lewis, and Mirjana Jokovic for this little gem.
HASH(0x948be0f0) out of 5 stars another to add to your d.d.l. collection 27 April 2009
By T. Martin - Published on Amazon.com
i saw this years ago when i was in a mood to watch all the d.d.l. movies that were available on dvd. it is an everyman tale with obvious conflicts and resolutions. but, it's still a very good sleeper that shouldn't be overlooked.

Not a disgusting stereotype in the whole thing. So much like the real world it's refreshing, enlightening, and weird.
