What a gem this film is! "He Was a Quiet Man" is an examination of the "inner self" in us all. How much of ourselves do we show in public? Is that hunky guy REALLY a mouse at heart? Is that gorgeous blonde REALLY a nagging shrew?

Christian Slater has finally delivered his best! He plays Bob Maconel, a bookish nerd office worker who talks to his pet fish, moving headlong into middle age with nothing to show for all his toil. Elisha Cuthbert plays a woman who works in an office upstairs, with the CEO (William H. Macy), after sleeping her way to the position she holds. While it may seem that these two have absolutely NOTHING in common, an incident in Bob's office basically brings these two together in the most unexpected way.

The relationship that developes gives Bob a new lease on life. he no longer dreams of revenge (did I say he keeps a loaded revolver in his desk?), but rather, how he can make life worth living, for both himself, and the new woman in his life. Because of the circumstances surrounding his part in the office incident, Bob is a hero! He is given an office upstairs! The job is really nothing more than a senecure, but it affords Bob a greater sense of security. Life is good! Until..........

Many have compared this film to "Brazil", and while it has more than just a passing similarity to it, the performances of the principle actors in this most darkest of comedies, is awards-worthy! If you want to see one of the best Indies to come out in a while, you MUST see "He Was a Quiet Man"!!
