An unusual, tragic-comic movie that leaves you thinking!
This is a very different movie. Its about a successful carseller somewhere in the US. A carseller that is going mad and is very depressed. He doesnt know what it's all about. He seems tired of the way his life is. Bruce Willis makes and extremely good performance in this role.
As an employee, we have Nick Nolte. A very comical character, who always sucks up to the boss (Bruce Willis). He's desperate to hide something from him, and that's seems to be the only thing he thinks of. Nolte is very very funny in this role.
Then we have Albert Finney, who also makes a strong effort here. He plays the cynical and depressed author, who for once in his life gets attention.
It's a very strong movie, with great actors and the perfect, sad music to accompany it all. It's very touching and filosophical. The ending is wonderful! I cant really explain it all in words...I have only one thing to say to you: GO SEE THIS MOVIE !!
Its truly great! I give it a 10!
