Out of tragedy comes hope and new love
2 August 2002 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is one of those movies that lingers in your memory long after you've seen it. It's a gentle kind of romance that shows how Fate can strike with misfortune yet in time turn it around to have a positive outcome.

At the start young Helen James (Susan Penhaligon) is caught in a heavy snowstorm while driving. Luckily she is rescued and brought to the house in which former race car driver Dominic (Keir Dullea) lives very much in seclusion and helped only by his close friend, Bolt (Jeremy Kemp). Slowly she learns about Dominic's anguished past and grows to love him but he is still too much caught up in his past grievous memories and isn't ready to face the future. Helen leaves, returns to her home and confronts her father, Sir Philip (Kenneth More), with her dilemma, eventually realizing she can't go on with her usual life as others expect her to. As they say, "The course of true love never does run smooth," and so it is here.

By the way, there's a pet leopard being kept by Dominic in the wintry, scenic setting, hence the title of the movie.

I often wished this movie was available on video and finally after long, long waiting I've been lucky to acquire the DVD!

A heartwarming tale for the romantics.
