A minor curiosity
7 November 2003 | by (Minneapolis) – See all my reviews

Anthropologists may find some of the documentary footage mildly interesting, and this footage has been well merged with a fictional story, but the results still add up to little more than a minor curiosity. The fictional story features a young Rex Reason and partially deals with that old war-time situation where a returning soldier calls on the widow of a dead comrade and finds himself falling in love with her. Laced into this story are some philosophical musings about fate and the wheel of life, but while these musings are treated sincerely and with respect, they never rise above the level of platitudes.
