When I was a boy, Tickle Head was a proud fishing harbor. Back then, people from Tickle Head were strong, dignified, brave. Their days were filled with purpose. By no means was this life for the faint of heart, for the weak or the lazy, but as I look back now, I can truly say life was a thing of beauty.

Loved this film when seeing a preview tonight. Hemril (?) this was made in Canada not Hollywood and is yet another example of whimsical, funny, character based storyline, without a special effect in sight.
The Canadian film industry has wonderful strengths which are sadly always overshadowed by our brasher cousins south of the border.
Seems a bit harsh only allowing English text - as this is based on a french story (and I am not a French speaker).
Also strange to be forced to write 10 lines - whatever happened to brevity and concise opinion in writing. Really do I have to fill your space with gibberish (and risk the review not being published)?
