Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Rough-hewn, fast-living Bobby Walker (Donnie Wahlberg) is a lucky guy: he gets to spend a lot of time with Eddy (Robert Forster), one of the most decent people you'll ever encounter -- and anyone who sees this refreshingly honest film will benefit the way Bobby does. Forster, whose unassuming career began in 1967, is a joy to behold, and it's about time he's come into his due. He's in virtually every frame of Diamond Men, and when the film is over, you feel you haven't spent enough time with the guy. This is one of those films with a vaguely European sensibility that won't -- and as it happens, didn't -- get wide release in the States, but it's also a movie that makes you glad you have a DVD player or VCR. Not a lot happens, but it's never boring; there's some fighting action, brief nudity, and lots of sexual innuendo, but it's never cheap or vulgar. It's just a superbly crafted character study of two people at different places in their lives, brought together by odd circumstances and struggling to make the most of it. There is also an excellent "one year later" coda that changes everything.
