Although set entirely in Canada, the film was mostly shot in the Dolomites mountain region of Italy. The remake of "A Farewell To Arms" was filmed in the same region at the same time, and the actors and crew-members of both films frequently relaxed together in the evenings after filming. See more »
I agree there are many good , bad or indifferent movies but the point is surely , for movie collectors / fans is the enjoyment of the film by the individual. Brit movies never cost anything like the cost of other countries movies to make so the results of this movie are pretty fair for it's production costs. It's also a very clean movie ( language wise) and the story was by a very good writer. I read the book years before I saw the film and the film lived up to the original story concepts. For me it is a great pity that such Brit movies do not receive more attention from restorers and DVD producers. ( It's one I would certainly buy for my movie collection if it were available )
