By lawyeraau HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on March 27, 2003
Format: VHS Tape Verified Purchase
This film is an unlikely romance that works on many levels. Deftly directed by Tony Bill who shows a penchant for handling delicate sentiments as if they were gossamer threads, this film is truly one of the most romantic that I have seen. That this is so, despite the fact that many of the most romantic moments take place in a downtown Minneapolis diner, a dingy basement apartment, the front porch of a house in a blue collar, working class neighborhood, or in an old dilapidated clunker of a car, is a testament to the ability of the director.
Marisa Tomei is luminous as Caroline, the Minneapolis waitress with self-esteem problems who looks for love in all the wrong places, before finding it right where she works. She imbues Caroline with just the right measure of street smarts, working class edge, and little girl vulnerability. She is a needy, though nice, young woman who desperately wants to love and be loved. Unfortunately, the guys she meets tend to treat her as a one night stand. Sensitive and romantic Adam, the reticent and quirky busboy who works the night shift with Caroline, is just what the doctor ordered.
As Adam, Caroline's veritable knight in shining armor, Christian Slater gives his best performance ever. An orphan with a disability that he cloaks with an intriguing story, Adam is a true romantic hero. His quiet sincerity, delicate sensibilities, and apparent contentment in worshipping from afar touch Caroline, tugging at her heart strings. You see, he treats her as if she were a princess rather than as a strumpet. Christian Slater's sensitive and moving performance in a difficult role strikes just the right note. I would bet that nearly every woman who watches this film succumbs to his charms and finds herself half falling in love with him.

I've just finished reviewing Titanic and decided to check out what people said about a real romance. I was surprised that I'm the first one to have anything to say about it. I had always pictured Slater as a bad-boy especially considering his most recent run-ins with the law. In an interview he said that his role in this film was the one he missed the most. By watching this film one sees why. Slater gives a surprising and welcoming performance as a shy busboy secretly in love with an unlucky waitress. Tomei and Slater have wonderful chemistry on-screen and it is just beautiful to see the two of them fall in love. I realized why Tomei won an Oscar the previous year. There is nothing new in this film that will attract the average romantic. Rather, the way the story is exected is what draws an audience in. Now if only a certain boat movie had followed this example before creating an expensive mess...

Sure we've seen Christian Slater in the rough movies, sure Marisa Tomei has been the pseudo-sophisticated, gum cracking chick in My Cousin Vinny; and of course Rosie Perez bit off juicier movie roles in White Men Can't Jump and Fearless. But here each actor is completely out of character [but in a great departure from their usual parts] in their portrayals of small town young people struggling to make a living (and an impact somehow in their own lives). There's one disturbing scene of abuse, but otherwise Untamed Heart is a sensitive, gentle love story with genuine performances by talented actors. It will touch you and make you both laugh and cry.

For those of us who have already "met" Christian Slater and Marisa Tomei in their star-making roles, "Untamed Heart" offers a series of pleasant surprises to go along with a tear-jerker of a plot.

Slater has made a career out of channeling Jack Nicholson into Generation X roles in such movies as "Heathers" and "True Romance" (which also came out in 1993, at the same time as "Untamed Heart"). In these movies, Slater is the smart-*ss with the devilish grin and irresistable command of the quip. Adam, his role in "Untamed Heart," could not be a further departure from Clarence of "True Romance." An orphan with a weak heart, Adam speaks seldom but feels deeply, even though he's never had a relationship with a woman. As a busboy and janitor for a small-time Minneapolis diner, he falls in a big way for Carolina (Marisa Tomei), a waitress at the diner. But even though Adam feels big feelings for Caroline, Slater wisely restrains himself - I don't think we even get a single arched eyebrow!

Caroline is also a departure for Tomei from the wise-cracking Noo Yawka she played in her career-making "My Cousin Vinnie." Caroline is one of those girls everyone knows in high school but never appears in the movies -- a cute gal whose talents lie buried under massive self-esteem issues. Soft-spoken except with her family and fellow waitresses, Caroline is forever starting ventures but never finishing them. We also get the sense that Caroline has gotten "familiar" with a lotta guys over the years.

Adam thwarts an ugly attempted rape as two guys "escort" Caroline home on a chilly night. In a lesser movie, Caroline would have instantly jumped into the sack with her hero to "reward" him for his chivalry, but Caroline regards Adam with a confused wariness that's quite believable.
