First film as a producer for Norma Heyman. Heyman had tried for years to get this movie made ever since she first read the novel back in the early 1970s. Heyman was turned down by the majority of Hollywood film studios. Proper development on the film began when, after a chance meeting with actor Richard Gere at a New York restaurant, Gere was sent the script, and showed interested in doing the film. See more »
It was difficult to watch this film because of the miscasting of Richard Gere who seems at last partially anesthesthetized through the entire movie. There is not one bit of passion in his manner or his speech and, whenever he is on the screen, there is a hole through which all tension drains. Bob Hoskins is not a convincing Latin at all, neither in accent nor in manner. Better casting in these two parts would have improved this film immeasurably.
An interesting, semi-error shows many of the main characters sweating through their shirts. In tropic and sub-tropic regions, locals have heat adapted well enough so that they sweat almost unnoticeably in normal conditions and thus can appear crisp and unruffled in temperatures where those of us from more temperate climates sweat like water buffalo.
