Penelope Cruz's first English Speaking film, I believe. Penelope is not great (although beautiful,) but the movie is a must watch! Beautifully shot, and a magnificent story. My fifth viewing, and I never get tired of it!
Samuel Froeler is a consumate performer. I strongly recommend him in any movie. "Good Intentions" for one. John Savage might have aged, but turn an excellent performance as the disillusioned Padre.
In some ways, the protagonist is a prophetic persona, as it forecasts the evils of Agent Orange, earlier than it was used prolifically in Vietnam. It also introduces the world to the very first at rain-forest conservation in South America.
