Viggo Mortensen was prepared for the pain of battle in the bathroom of oriental promises

In an interview with Cinema every day, Mortensen explained how he prepared for the bath scene, which included incorporating hand-to-hand combat tactics he had read in military manuals while in Russia. He then asked for input from the actors he worked with on the scene, David Papava and Tamer Hassan, stuntmen with experience and training in different fighting styles. The incorporation of a military combat style adds to the realism of the scene, coupled with the fact that Mortensen was committed to making it look as realistic as possible. And yes, he knew filming would be painful:

“We worked hard on the choreography and I knew, when we were preparing, it was going to be painful. It would be uncomfortable. And nudity really, it makes sense… It’s real. The focus is on not getting injured, obviously, but also getting bruises to be able to successfully complete the fight and have it look real and original.”

Mortensen is no stranger to venturing into a film, no matter the circumstances (which, in many cases, lead to physical trauma). It was widely shared that Mortensen broken leg while making “The Lord of the Rings: Two Towers”, while a little known fact is that he also lost a tooth while filming the Battle of Helm’s Deep. His approach to “Oriental Promises” is similarly devoted. Mortensen incorporated his own ideas into the fight choreography and didn’t back down, even when bruised while filming. In one Comment on the sceneCronenberg said that the decision to do the nude scene was Mortensen’s, which highlights the trust established between him and the actor since they worked together on “A History of Violence”.
