Quote from: ono on July 14, 2003, 12:13:11 AMThere are so many great moments in this film, one of which I really remember: Leon (LaPaglia) is running and he slams into another guy and explodes, yelling at him. Both their faces are bloodied, the other man's nose possibly broken. Leon sees the man has dropped a bag, and feeling bad, he runs after him and gets it and tries to smooth things over. And the man (full grown, strong, goatee and everything) just breaks down and starts crying in Leon's arms. And I haven't seen anything like that since Brando in Last Tango in Paris. My jaw dropped open, it was so real, so powerful. Later on, Leon meets John, the man whose wife he's having an affair with, unbeknownst to him. They share drinks, and discuss the incident in the bathroom, wondering what it would take for someone to cry like that. It gets even better when the scene was paralleled later on in the movie when Leon cries upon hearing a tape where his wife professes she still loves him (long story; see the film to understand it).
Quote from: filmcritic on July 14, 2003, 12:20:10 AMit really wasn't about a murder case. It's about love and marriage. Two Thumbs Way Up for me for "Lantana".
