Storyline

The story of an improbable romance between a cosmopolitan career woman and a small-town fisherman. When sophisticated New York journalist Edith Iglauer is assigned to go to British Columbia to write a frivolous piece on the fishing industry, she butts heads with local fisherman and notorious loner, John Daly. While she thrives on the fast-paced life of Manhattan, he loathes pretension and could go days without speaking to anyone. But when the two are caught in a perilous situation, they are forced to put aside their pettiness and re-examine their lives. With external factors stripped away, they begin to fall in love. Ultimately, Edith must decide between staying in the glamorous world she has always cherished or leaving it all behind for a chance at love. Written by DANIEL

romantic story:love of nature, love of fishing and love of woman
28 July 2009 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the best movies I have seen in a long time...Tim Matheson is excellent as a fisherman who loves and respects nature and eventually a beautiful woman. I learned a lot about salmon fishing and the risks the fishermen take to put salmon on our tables. Tantoo Cardinal's explanation of the Indian Ritual was beautiful and so true. So much of the movie was simple, yet powerful and beautiful. I read Edith Iglauer's book and thought it was very good. Even though, the movie takes some liberties, it was easy to see how much John and Edith loved and respected each other in both the book and the movie. My two favorite scenes were when Edith was telling John she had to go back to New York and his response, and then when they got off the boat to walk up to their wedding altar. The way John looked at Edith and placed his hand over hers would melt one's heart. He was so masculine and Edith was so feminine, and yet, she would not only become a part of this rugged life, but make it a part of hers. There is something to be said for going back to nature. Wonderful, wonderful story.
