Beautiful film, beautiful subject
24 March 2004 | by (Ramat-Gan, Israel) – See all my reviews

Although I've never been to Catalina Island, Greg Reitman's film takes the viewer by the hand and leads him through all the many splendors of this wonderful location. Everything is covered: History, art, music, film, celebrities, lifestyle and most important the wondrous nature of this unique place. Peter Coyote's narration is outstanding. The original material that Reitman has discovered from the beginning of the 20th century until today, truly bring forth the richness and diversity of Catalina, and make you want to stay much longer than the 52 minutes of the film.

Anyone who loves the island, and for anyone that loves life should seek out this gorgeous film.
