Excellent! A wonderful REAL romance, with many relationship messages.
5 May 2000 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

When I saw the very high rating that users gave to this film, I knew it was worth a look. What a nice surprise to find this gem of a film! My wife and I still talked about it the next day.

The acting is nearly flawless, with fine cinematography and script. The film is made by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and directed by Eric Till, who has over 40 movies to his credit. While not a block-buster movie, it rises far above made-for-TV flicks. This is a 'sleeper' that deserves wider attention.

One of the film's main strengths is that it's many powerful messages are understated, making viewers think and discover meanings for themselves. By contrast, Hollywood throws hackneyed and stereotyped themes at audiences who are seemingly incapable of rationality. "Buffalo Jump" portrays life as it is, and does not insult the viewer with the usual violence, sex, and cheap thrills.

"Buffalo Jump" challenges us with situations. There are many questions that the film presents to us, offering plausible real-life solutions. Note also how the film portrays: social workers, native Indians, mother-daughter relationships, sexual initiatives as well as abstinence.

If you live on a farm, or in a rural area, it is a must-see. Suitable for the family but stick with it if you find it slow in the beginning.

Watch it with someone you love, or at least with love in your heart. A great romance, with many events to ponder afterwards.

'Highly Recommended' was the sticker put on the video by the shop owners. We agree.
