Judging from the date and location, I must have caught the same broadcast the previous poster got!

I generally dislike the movies my country makes, both for their terrible production values, and for their obsession of making movies about sexual perversion and/or depressing topics that no sane person wants to see. (Other countries, seeing our movies, must think we are freaks!)

SUDDEN FURY, on the other hand, is an exception to that rule. It's hard to believe that the usual "art-only" government film funders funded this movie, since it's more or less a suspense thriller that was made to entertain an audience! Also, since the movie is almost totally shot outdoors, the usual cheap production values associated with Canadian films is seldom seen.

The story actually has some suspense, and I was frequently wondering what was going to happen next. However, the movie goes on too long, and the last few minutes play out like the filmmakers suddenly ran out of money (two characters actually talk out loud about what they are going to do, instead of actually playing it out - which would have been more suspenseful.) Also, there were some glaring clues and circumstantial evidence(one involving different guns and bullets) that are never brought up. Either the screenwriter didn't think about these details when writing this movie, or that there was indeed a different written ending that would have brought these up.

Still, above average for a Canadian film. Certainly better than the movies the government funds these days, including that HORRIBLE movie "Paint Cans"!!!
