Gian Luigi Polidoro
A widow with a young daughter travels to a ranch in Wyoming to manage the household of a rancher. After a while the man and woman develop a relationship that leads to a marriage. But life in the harsh place takes its toll.
Often at random told, unbalanced and as a result not easy to follow sensitive drama; Lilienthal aims for atmosphere rather than story telling. Because of the loose structure this aiming for atmosphere is limited to individual scenes rather than the film as a whole; but he does it well. In this he is supported by sharp cinematography and good cast.
