Viggo is an amazing actor with a wide range of talent.Eastern Promises is one to be watched several timesbecause of the subtlety of all the actors. Well, the steambath scene too.

It is very amazing to find a man who plays his role the way he only knows how to do it. He was great in Eastern Promises, he looked like a really gangster Russian man, and he knew how to keep the attention of people in the movie. However, the most incredible thing that I admire him is not only the good actor that he is, but also the great talent and sensibility that man has. He acts, he writes,
1. Vory v Zakone are all in their 80's. They have been replaced by much more violent and more powerful mafia's.2. No one in the movie speaks Russian - or close to understable Russian... A lot of of the time - had to switch he subtitles on to understand... 3. No story line what so ever... 4. Movie only concetrates on tattoos and throat cutting... Which russian mafia's excel in - however - no real
Having seen Viggo Mortenson in "A History Of Violence" I know what a wonderful actor he has become. I have not seen "Eastern Promises" yet I intend to, most likely by renting the video. The synopsis intrigues me, so I am eager for it to come out on DVD.P.S. I have just re-rented "A History Of Violence" something I rarely do!!
A brilliant and striking film, but too bloody and sadistic for my taste. It isn't entertainment, but it is a near-perfect example of film art.
