A genuinely magnificent solitary quest
5 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This short, by the Film Board of Canada, presents a sublime tale of man's courage and determination.

A tough old man seeks a lost gold mine on the wilds of Northwestern Canada. He prepares for a long, tough journey but the difficulties that he faces only become clearer as the trip progresses.

His creature comforts are very rude but he seems not to notice.

The man's face and body language tell us much of the steel of his backbone.

In ways that remind me of both "The Old Man and the Sea" and " The Treasure of the Sierra Madre" this quest is epic. The main difference is that this is a true story.

A real gem!
