Maria Grazia Cucinotta,
This odd film benefits from the talents of the older supporting actors, who hold your interest far more than the lead actors. Although they do not appear for very long at a time, Joe Pantoliano adds the interest, Louise Fletcher adds character and the amazing Eugene Levy adds fire and energy to what is otherwise a rather slow movie. Honestly, I might not have finished the movie and was very tempted to fast forward to the next scene with "Leon" the Jewish gangster just to see more of Levy's sinister insanity, which actually drove the movie along more than the lead plot. Most of us are used to seeing Levy's dorky, sweet, everyman persona, but this is a step WAY WAY out of his box. Not since "Splash" has he played a "bad" guy, and never have I seen him play someone genuinely SCARY. And he plays nicely off the lead actress with a very charismatic attitude in a very quick but character revealing scene. So if you do rent this movie and it seems a little slow, stick with it for the heart-stopping finale. You'll be amazed. Movie: 6 of 10, Eugene Levy's performance: 10 of 10.
