Movie Moments: #79

Enemy Mine (1985)

This movie was a financial disaster for 20th Century Fox and was panned by the critics.  Nonetheless I like it.  The film’s message applies equally to our own present world but even apart from its message it is a good sci fi flick.

A soldier stranded on an inhospitable planet finds that an alien enemy soldier is also stranded there.  They must cooperate to survive.

Davidge: "If one receives evil from another, let one not do evil in return. Rather, let him extend love to the enemy, that love might unite them." I've heard all this before... in the human Taalmaan.
Jerry: Of course you have. Truth is truth.

Movie Trailer:

The whole film was originally shot in Iceland by original director Richard Loncraine.  When he clashed with the producers over "creative differences", he was dumped and the project was shut down. Wolfgang Petersen took over direction and reshot the whole film in Munich, changing the storyline in the process.
