Storyline

During the Klondike Gold Rush of 1898, Emily Meyer joins a group of German immigrants who travel to the Far North in search of gold deposits. The seven apprentice gold-diggers, who have no real idea of what awaits them, leave the town of Ashcroft, the end of the railway line and set off for their long journey. As they sink into the wilderness of Canada's wide-open paces, fatigue is felt. Worse, the maps become uncertain. As a result, doubt sets in and conflicts burst forth... Written by Guy Bellinger

Quotes

Gustav Müller: [Speaking in German, with English subtitles, to the group at a campfire] Let's drink to a successful voyage.
Wilhelm Laser: Müller, we'd agreed on a bare minimum of provisions.
Gustav Müller: There's no need for pettiness, Laser. No one could object to a good beer. The sooner we've drunk it, the lighter my load will be. Here's to the gold. It's waiting for us.

Fool's Gold
11 July 2014 | by operdocSee all my reviews

Well, it shore is pretty. Little reason to watch this implausible movie, unless, like me, you're a fan of Nina Hoss and you like to watch beautiful scenery.

The trip itself is plausible enough. Plenty of fools made their way to Alaska for this second gold rush. There is even another movie (a better movie) about a similar subject called 'The Far Country' with Jimmy Stewart. But what happens along the way, and the way it is plotted and executed is absurd and comical.

Woe if you were a horse in this movie. Or one of the actors forced to speak the stiff dialog. The two main characters, Nina Hoss as Emily and Marco Mandic as Bohmer are believable enough, but tripped up by a silly plot. It's always difficult to make a movie about a long arduous trip without it seeming artificially episodic and here, the director and screenwriter, have failed.
