It was much less offensive than many “PG” movies. Mel Gibson once again proves he is a versatile actor. Not super believable but definitely worth seeing.

After a climactic buildup, the bandages are removed, revealing to the audience that she is beautiful. However the reaction of the doctor and nurses is disappointment; the operation has failed, her face has undergone "no change - no change at all". At this point, the doctor, nurses and other people in the hospital, whose faces have never been seen clearly before, are now revealed to be horribly deformed in the audience's perspective, with large brows, curled lips, and misshapen, pig-like noses Reframing Difference: Beur and Banlieue Filmmaking in France.
