The scene comes midway through the movie, in which Mortensen play Nikolai, a Russian mob member working for the Vory V Zakone criminal brotherhood, a man whose carefully maintained existence is thrown into confusion when he meets a young midwife, played by Naomi Watts.
The noirish movie, set in the London underworld, contains a number of unpleasant scenes, but the bloody fight sequence is by far the most protracted, with Cronenberg leaving the camera lingering; there are no quick edits to save the actor's dignity, or the audience members' nerves."It was slippery, painful, embarrassing," says Mortensen. I always knew the scene should be as realistic as the rest of the movie, so I couldn't feasibly keep the towel on.
