Charming family film
30 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

By the 1980s, the "out in nature" family film was on its last legs, which may explain why after this particular effort was made in 1982, it took two years to find a distributor. It doesn't seem to have received much of a theatrical release, since it's pretty obscure and hard to find today, which is a shame. I will admit the movie is far from perfect. It's pretty low budget, ranging from the excessive use of stock footage to the fact the characters only seem to have one set of clothes each. It is almost totally free of action, and is quite slow at times. But all the same, I really enjoyed it. While it's slow, it has an easygoing charm all the way through. It emphasizes good values such as family ties and love, as well as respect for animals and the environment. A little religion is thrown in as well, but it's not heavy-handed. The cast does very well, particularly stars George "Buck" Flower and Charles Napier. The movie is a perfect antidote for the loud and strident family movies being made today.
