Sweet, unique, great scenery, and Crewson and Gross just getting started
29 November 2004 | by (Calgary, AB) – See all my reviews

I loved a lot of things about this movie -- the setting close to home in the outstanding Alberta foothills, Paul Gross much younger then expected, the tender romance, the fairly unique plot, the notion of people trying to be good and not always succeeding. The Scottish vs. Ukranian prarie stereotypes. It's a good movie and there are lots of reasons to rent it.

It wasn't a great movie though -- a little too slow moving, production quality (at least on the DVD) is obviously made-for-TV, and the soundtrack was completely absent too often, and when it did show up it was too sappy. I would have preferred tighter edits, and less gratuitous cinematography (especially on video, which can't really do the Alberta ranchlands justice).

I'll stop short of calling for less gratuitous scenes of a semi-clad muscular Paul Gross working on the ranch, as I'm sure at least half of you will enjoy that.

It's a must-rent for anyone from Canadian Prarie Ranch Stock.

It reminds me a little bit of "The Hired Hand", but without the violence, without the hard edge, a sweeter romance, and I think better overall (sorry Mr. Fonda).

Doesn't begin to compare with "Bye Bye Blues" though.
