An earnest Canadian snoozer with no driving question.
24 August 2001 | by WeHaveSixFeetSee all my reviews

This beautifully shot film has no plot, only a series of events in a pioneering woman doctor's life that are unconnected by any driving question about the main character. We know very little about the main character, what drives her, what she fears, what she wants, what's getting in her way. Everything that looks like it might develop into a promising bit of conflict is immediately brushed away as she goes from success to success. As a filmstrip about an important Canadian doctor, fine, but as drama? I think not.
