Still charming after all these years; let's help preserve it!
30 September 2013 | by (Edmonton, Canada) – See all my reviews

Saw this at its 20th-anniversary screening at the 2013 Edmonton International Film Festival. It was great to see how well it has stood the test of time, and to see it on the big screen.

It's not a perfect film—it's a bit of a shaggy-dog tale, and some of the comic elements work better than others. That said, its pleasures vastly outweigh any of its flaws. Some fantastic comedic performances, most notably from underused First Nations actor Sam Bob and Battlestar Galactica's Michael Hogan.

The director, Francis Damberger, is selling DVD copies of the film in an attempt to raise the capital needed for a proper high-definition digital transfer of the film. Send a few bucks his way, snag your own personal copy of the movie, and help preserve this classic slice of Canadiana while we still can! For info, email him: dfcc.fran-at-gmail-dot-com.
