Jim is the craftsman who will do whatever is necessary to produce a quality piece, regardless of cost to the company or customer wants. Caleb is the business person who tries to reign Jim in, realizing that if he cannot do so the business will fail. Into their lives returns Matthew, an old friend of Caleb's parents from back in the days when they were hippies during the Vietnam War era. Jim was an American draft dodger and Matthew was an American army deserter. While Jim has stuck to his idealistic hippie roots, Matthew is now a wealthy developer who is building a lodge in the area. In discussions solely with Caleb, Matthew commissions chairs to be made for the lodge. Seeing this contract as a way for the business to flourish, Caleb agrees but asks Matthew not to divulge to Jim that the chairs they will be making are for him, as he knows Jim will ...

Gorgeous film
1 March 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw A Simple Curve in the theatre and am sad that due to its limited release most people won't have a chance to enjoy the grandeur of the cinematography the way its intended. Visually, the film manages to capture the Kootenay region in a way that few films manage. It is well worth hunting down a theatre that is showing this film - it deserves to be seen.

The story is also a wonderful one. A coming of age story with some nice twists, it has a gentle humour to it that manages to poke fun at all the hippie stereotypes while still showing respect for the idealism of the era.

Kris Lemche as Caleb manages to give a consistently strong performances despite the fact his role is pretty demanding and he is in every scene. The wisdom and humour that Caleb shows through the movie is a pleasure to watch.
