6.Eversmile, New Jersey
(Carlos Sorin, 1989)
Fergus O’Connell, an itinerant Irish dentist, offers his services free-of-charge to the isolated rural population of Patagonia, in Argentina. He can do so because of the supposedly no-strings sponsorship of a “dental consciousness” foundation. While his motorbike is being repaired, O’Connell meets Estela, the garage-owner’s daughter, and they quickly become affectionate towards each other.
Oscar winner Daniel Day Lewis played the role of the dentist.
Both lovers have the prior commitment: he is married, and she is engaged. They go off together all the same. After a series of bizarre adventures, O’Connell discovers that there’s a subliminal price tag attached to his altruistic free services.

It is a funny movie with a dentist as a central character going after a mafia hitman.
