User review:

The first time I saw this film, I had yet to know the name Leonardo DiCaprio. And I was stunned. Is that actor really retarded or what? His acting is so excellent, you don’t need to doubt why he got to be so big.

But all others perform real well also. I have always had an eye for Depp’s acting, and Lewis is, like always, little. The new thing is that she’s kind and caring.

This is a great film, and if nothing else, watch it because a swede directed it.

  1. Leo’s first major role was also one of the very greatest performances he ever put in. I watched it in the theater when it first came out, and was blown away. I confidently predicted that we’d see much more of the young actor, and events have proven me right. 😉
