I just saw this movie last night and while it had a noble theme running through it-'Be Kind to the Animals' some parts just didn't make sense. For instance, the main character, Erik, who is supposed to love animals beyond life itself, neglects to take care of the ones that he has. While Erik Larsen is not a professional actor, he had an endearing quality to him that helped save this picture from being a total waste of time. I must say however, that if we had a taken one more trip up "to the high country" I would have screamed like a woman! The movie went on too long and they should have should considered script problems. The best part-Erik Larsen was believable.
