A wonderful movie but needs a caution
25 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

A number of reviewers on Netflix criticized this because it wasn't "accurate", but it's not trying to be a documentary, it's trying to be a -- as it says in the title -- story. As such, there are actors (the horses), scripted lines ("Ne-ei-ei-gh!"), and it wasn't 'accurate' in the sense that, for one, horses won't run miles into unfamiliar territory away from the nearest herd.

The photography, though, was stupendous, and the three story lines were decent enough. The main quibble is that, at a paltry 45 minutes, it wasn't near long enough.

If you like horse-related documentaries and such, check out "Buck", the story of the guy who inspired the Robert Redford movie "The Horse Whisperer". Pretty amazing.
