Although this movie has a timeless feeling to it, I can't help and feel it is dealing with very contemporary issues. A man fighting for what he believes in, surrounded by a harsh world where the rules of the game are slowly changing and money becomes more important than passion, even when your job is to bond with the land and the animals that live off it.
The visual aspect of this movie is also very important. The photography is stunning, and the landscape is mesmerizing. It is a beautiful, poetic and subtle movie. I can only strongly recommend it, as it fits in the dire times we are all going through and we can all identify with it at some level. A beautiful lesson of cinema. I will be expecting John Shank's next movie with impatience. That man has what it takes.
