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

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)!

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.
