A Kurosawa title, the end-quote by Boris Vian, yet a great kids-film !
9 November 2003 | by (amsterdam) – See all my reviews

In the beautiful outdoors of Canada, kids are struggling with the prejudices and heritage of their parents, and occasionally with some week lines from the writer, who is on the other hand a superb director.

The kids play wonderfully, for the most part. The morals are there (juiced out completely without becoming too obtrusive), together with friendship and betrayal, war and peace, the first kiss, nature and humanity; all combined make this a most agreeable movie.

For the kids, and maybe others...
