The film was shot in Yugoslavia during the summer of 1988. As editing neared completion civil war tore apart the region and much of the footage was stored in Avala films warehouse in Belgrade. In 1996, producer Andjelo Arandjelovic, worked on getting a distribution deal for the film, before it ended up getting released direct-to-video in 1997. See more »

A young American has a rare skin disease, and is required to wear a protective leather body suit at all times.
In spite of what others have said, I enjoyed this movie. I had never heard of it before and I have just seen it on the Canadian Movie Channel. I was puzzled to see how young Brad Pitt was - even younger than in "Thelma and Louise" - until I read the explanation about it being filmed in Yugoslavia in 1988 and then being lost for 9 years until finally issued in 1997. As I am a male senior citizen, I don't get palpitations at the sight of Brad Pitt, but I do like and respect him, and have enjoyed most of his movies. Some of the acting and parts of the script leave a great deal to be desired. However, this movie has a very Film Festival European feel to it, and in my view is a bit too deep for most North American film fans (insult intended). The scene of him frolicking in the ocean with the dolphins, and his description of the most wonderful day that he had ever spent, moved me tremendously. Life is made up of choices, and the choice for the hero was one day of great happiness and joy, or a lifetime of imprisonment.
