Simply Wonderful!
18 March 2002 | by (Alaska) – See all my reviews

This is a GREAT movie! Highly recommended for everyone. I saw this movie as a child and loved it then. Seeing it again, now as a father of two, more than twenty years later; it is STILL a wonderful movie! Today's world is full of harsh news, disrespect, and a hardened society. This is one of those movies that will take you back to a different time when people actually cared about life and each other! I don't understand hendersn75's awful review at all. I live in Alaska. If he knew what it was like to live here, let alone try to film in this environment, I think he would change his mind. I think the cinematography in this film, especially considering being a 70's film, is simply wonderful. This was all done entirely on location, unlike most films of today. If you see this movie and like it, then also check out "The Dove" 1974, a true story. Not as visually stimulating as "Sea Gypsies", but very interesting also.
