Wry subtle humour, great acting, 11 February 2012
Author: Don MacKinnon from Toronto, Canada

Both my wife and I loved this. Excellence abounds. Leacock's subtle Twain-like observations come to life in the hands of a great cast. Gordon Pinsent's voice-over is perfect for this story. The production and direction are outstanding. Oddly, the extraordinary modern special effects work in this story of a hundred years ago -- they move you into and out of the story, and along the way provide just enough distance for the humour to operate. The director's presence, along with Leacock's, is felt from the opening scene. But that presence isn't heavy-handed, rather it's inviting. Leacock saw humans as quirky, each with their own flaws and frailties, but he didn't see them as evil -- at least not in these stories. The actors are flawless in their portrayal of each character's quirky charms and failings. Donal Logue, as always, was excellent. Her role gave Jill Hennessey more chance to display her charming talents than Crossing Jordan ever did. The other foible-laden characters of Maripossa were brought to life with consummate skill by this brilliant cast. Thanks for this.
