Beautiful Scenery
5 January 2001 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Actually as I write this I am watching the movie on tv, so I don't even know how it will end yet. It is a gripping story to watch, and how the details are unfolding about the innocence or guilt of a woman who has run away from a traumatic experience. I'm intrigued to know what the conclusion will be. What I find so eye-catching is the wonderful scenery of mountains, lakes and valleys. It's absolutely breathtaking! Sorry I can't provide more insight into the plot but the movie isn't over yet. It's a story that grips your attention until the final outcome. A good down-to-earth story and with some adult content.
