This is the story of three horses born on the same night and charts their life stories. One horse is sent to a stud farm, but on the way it is involved in a car crash and escapes into the mountains. The second becomes a racehorse aiming to win. The final one becomes an eventer but doesn't preform well and finally becomes a stunt horse in the movies. This film shows all the ups and downs, success's and failures of the horses who started life together but now are completely different.Written by
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.
