Absorbing Story from a Different Angle
16 March 2003 | by (Miami, FL) – See all my reviews

Deftly directed story about a young man caught in between conscience, duty and his debt to the mob.

I do not normally gravitate to stories of this nature - but the title character's approach to the role caught my attention.

Danny Nucci was perfectly cast as the "mafia doctor. His intelligently understated performance proves once again that Daniel continues to grow as an actor and should be offered more and more interesting roles to play. He's definitely one of my favorite actors.

The supporting cast headed by Paul Sorvino and Olympia Dukakis also performed at their highest pitch and it was a pleasure to see these two outstanding actors in these roles. I particularly enjoyed Jonathan Scarfe's portrayal of Nucci's best friend. Also, I enjoyed the performance of the man who play the police detective (whose name I cannot recall.)

I recommend this thoughtful tale to anyone who is normally turned off by mob stories. It was presented in such a manner which avoided the sleazy-slinky stereotypes one usually sees in much lesser efforts.
