Untamed Heart | 1993 | PG-13 | - 4.5.5

Bitter-sweet story about a pretty girl (Marisa Tomei) who falls in love with a rather simple-minded man (Christian Slater) who suffers from a heart-ailment, to boot.

SEX/NUDITY 4 - Tomei is shown in her underwear. Later, Slater caresses her clothed chest and they end up taking each other's clothes off; but we only see her nude shoulders and back and nothing really happens. There is one scene when we do see them lying -- covered -- in bed together. Another man violently rips Tomei's blouse, and we see her bra. There's some tender kissing.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - There is one disturbing scene of an attempted rape. There's chasing, shoving, and hitting, as Tomei is attacked and thrown to the ground. Her clothes are ripped open and one man pounds her head on the ground until she passes out. There are two brief fights, with punching, kicking and clubbing. We see a man with a knife in his stomach, which he proceeds to pull out. Some blood is visible.

LANGUAGE 5 - Some harsh to profane name calling. The F-word is uttered once.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Being an orphan, broken relationships, death. Most of the characters smoke; a lot, and frequently.

MESSAGE - Finish what you start. Don't judge people by pre-conceived ideas. Being naive is not the same as being stupid.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
