Storyline

Spring, 1865. The last spring in the childhood of Lukas Bienmann. Nothing forebodes the calamities about to befall the 13-year-old boy and his family in the peaceful town of Liebenberg, Prussia. Nature awakens to new life, and Lukas is happy, for his mother is about to give birth to her second child, and Lukas' grandfather, Brunneck, is coming from Canada for the event. Brunneck, however, brings only discord to the family. Though Lukas is excited by his grandfather's plans to take the family back with him to Canada, his father Karl will hear none of this. Tempers flare and Lukas' mother, deeply troubled and frightened, goes into early labor - and dies. Brunneck blames Karl, and demands to take Lukas with him. Bewildered, Lukas flees into the night. Lukas accidentally witnesses an altercation between a local nobleman, Count Otto von Lebrecht, and a gambling partner to whom he owes money. When Otto kills the man in a rage, Lukas tries to flee, but is caught by the murderer. Otto ... Written by Anonymous

DVD is lacking; original story a good one
6 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I bought this movie because I love Road to Avonlea and many of the actors from this series are in this movie. After watching the movie however, I was left scratching my head at a few of the plot twists and turns. Turns out after reading the summary (which is a FULL summary with spoilers FYI) that there are indeed scenes missing on the DVD that were part of the original movie that were most likely cut to fit on the DVD.

Plot twists that weren't intended aside, this is a good movie that spans a few continents and has something for the whole family to enjoy. Although there are death scenes in this movie, they are done delicately enough for the younger audience to still be able to watch. From Prussia, to the sea, to the wilderness to the prarie: this movie has every landscape one could want and a nice story to intermix all of them.
