Wonderful film
27 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a refreshing look at ranch life and family relationships. Buck Taylor is great in his portrayal of an aging rancher trying his best to come to grips with his past, while at the same time caring for his granddaughter and his land, both of which he loves dearly. Beautifully written and directed by Matthew Marconi, "Truce" is a well-told story of determination, forgiveness, and perseverance. The story unfolds gradually, drawing the viewer in to the lives of Harry Dodds and his granddaughter, Jenny, with interesting flashbacks giving insight into Harry's current struggles and dilemmas. Beautifully shot and edited, "Truce" speaks to our basic human desire for community and home, and the need we have for self-acceptance and hope.
