Storyline

A lone wolf drifter is traveling through the desolate North Dakota prairie during a harsh winter in his beat up station wagon towing an equally beat up trailer which probably contains all his worldly possessions. His only companion is a series of self-help cassette tapes, one which describes the path to romantic love. He comes across a deserted broken down pickup truck, and further down the road the almost frozen dead body of its driver, Nathaniel Shoemaker, who he saves from dying. In their travels, the drifter learns directly from Nathan and through very descriptive letters of Nathan's that the drifter reads while Nathan is unconscious that Nathan is going to pick up his pen-pal girlfriend from prison, she who has given him the nickname NoDak. They have been corresponding for three years, during which time they have fallen in love despite not knowing what the other looks like. Largely due to his isolation and because of the cassette tapes which he has memorized, the drifter believes... Written by Huggo

If You Like This Genre, You'll Love "Prairie Love"
2 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

"Prairie Love" is just the kind of movie I relish; the characters are the story, nothing was predictable, and the setting was so prominent that it was basically another character in the film.

As for camera work, the shots and angles matched the scenes beautifully. There was also this cool steampunk feel to the machinery. I'm not going to go into the story because I don't want to spoil a thing. I had no clue what it was about when I began. That turned out to be a big plus -- I was delighted at every turn.

Great editing and photography helped keep things riveting. Notice the askew angle of the snowline after "the act." You will know what I mean when you see it.

I'd have liked more backstory on "The Girl" to know why she was in trouble. We get a hint of that when she says hello and goodbye to parts of a dear, but we never really do know where she is coming from the way we do the others.

But, still, that's okay. We sure know who she is later on.

If you like Coen brothers-type pacing, getting to know characters and giving them time to reveal, and you have the patience to watch stories unfold, I couldn't recommend "Prairie Love" more highly.
