Marilyn Jordan, an American, lives in Stockholm with her Swedish husband and family. Her behavior is bizarre, perhaps mad: she poisons the dog's milk and advises the dog not to drink it; she sets the sheets afire as her husband sleeps; she crawls under the dining table to sing. While detained at airport customs for carrying pruning shears, she meets a young Yugoslav woman and goes with her to a Gypsy enclave where she's fought over, takes a lover, helps with the sordid entertainment at a bar, and returns home more dangerous than before. The film also tells parallel stories of Marilyn's daughter becoming a junior homemaker as the young immigrant practices her striptease.

Philip Seymour Hoffman and Bill Nighy give amazing performances. The script is good but a little slow in places. Richard Curtis did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this motion picture because of the music and drama.

Brandon S (gb) wrote: Downhill Racer is a very unique sports film that does tend to be pretty slow but the camerawork and the leads Redford and Hackman raise it up a notch. The film follows a skiier on his rise to glory to get to the Olympics and the troubles along the way not only with skiing but his personal life as well. The movie does seem very slow, but the races are filled with tension and keep you on the edge of your seat.
