A pretty good film
10 June 2002 | by (Porto, Portugal) – See all my reviews

When I started watching this movie on TV I thought that it was an ordinary film with anything special on it, after ten minutes I've changed my mind and started watching it very carefully. I thought it was a story about a native-american like "Un indien dans la ville" (imdb reference: 0111543) but it turned out to be a very interesting story about society and the best ways to survive to a small village's monotony.

The best detail about this movie is that Kate Hudson acts in a role totally different to the only other she played until this movie, after that she acted again with her co-workers from "Desert Blue" in the famous "200 cigarettes", and in "About Adam" and "Gossip" (this one is a bad movie with a good script) and then she became one of the most famous actress in the world, well "almost famous". In "Desert Blue" (which I also recommend) she is a movie star trapped in a village in the middle of the desert and learns how wonderful that place can be (with some more explosions), here she is a small village girl who likes rafting and wants to get away from her home village as soon as possible.

There is also a criminal to punish, and salmons to protect, with a lot of romance in the middle and an important lesson about the respect for the other races and species.

See it if possible, It's worth it!
