ABOUT THIS MOVIE

(Compiled by Carmel and Vicky)

Quotes from Johnny Depp:

"Cesar and Suzie had an unspoken understanding and recognition of each other."
--Johnny Depp

"Cesar is a guy who is not particularly comfortable in the world of humans; he's comfortable at the very base level - with his horse and animals - who are pure beings, innocent and honest."
--Johnny Depp

"...[Cesar] is a stoic figure, one of the guys who does his best to keep his emotions in check."
--Johnny Depp

"As much as they are in love, there is no way they can be together - even without the war there is no way they can be together - it's Romeo and Juliet, the Montagues and the Capulets."
--Johnny Depp

Quotes from others:

"He is so protective of me, like an older brother, that it's a bit weird to be faking having sex with him. But we know each other well enough to laugh about it... He always joked about us rooting around like pigs."
--Christina Ricci
