My God. A good Canadian movie...
6 February 2003 | by (Bracebridge Ont) – See all my reviews

Well, we had some help from the Scandanavians. Normally I avoid Canadian movies automatically. 90% of them are ghastly and pretentious. I made an exception here because we had visited Newfoundland last fall. I had been under the impression that it was a spoof of Random Passage. Not at all. It's a rollicking good adventure based on a true story. There is action, romance, rape and humour. Good stuff indeed!
