Worth watching, 19 February 2005
Author: Kelly E.F. Wiebe (senhue@mts.net) from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

The movie brought about memories of At Play in the Fields of the Lord (1991)primarily because both are set in the jungle and both have top notch actresses willing to look awful on screen. The title and the fact Olympia Dukakis was in the movie prompted me to rent it and I am glad I did. I didn't recognize Olympia Dukakis as Erina. Totally void of any complimentary makeup and wardrobe Miss Dukakis provided a performance which I feel is one of her best. Brenda Fricker also provides a great performance as Mrs. Jones. I am not too familiar with Janet McTeer but applaud her performance and willingness to appear naked and in such dreadful makeup. Tony Maudsley and JJ Feild round out the cast and compliment the story well. The movie is slow as molasses which can be a good break from all the fast paced stuff today. I did find myself wondering when these characters got around to bathing. Oh, beware the nude backside of the minister!
