What's behind the door?
17 November 2008 | by Richard Maurer (ram-30)See all my reviews

What seems at first to be a simple story about Depression life on the Prairies becomes an interesting mystery with a twist ending. This film is based on the short story by the great author Sinclair Ross. IMDb gives both Anne Wheeler and Donaleen Saul a writing credit which is too bad as it is basically taken word for word from Ross's story and Ross is already bordering on unjust anonymity. The story is about a young boy (Peter in the film, unnamed in the story) who seeks to find his uncle's missing calves and finds much more than this. The antagonist is played to menacing perfection by Robert Clouthier who, a few years later, would take his menacing persona to national fame as Relic on "The Beachcombers". He is even more psychopathic that Relic. To give the ending away would be criminal but if you can not find this film through the NFB catalogue or elsewhere, at least get a copy of Sinclair Ross's short stories and prepare yourself for a treat.
