Movie Reviews

Wonderful independent film
Jacy Carson | 11/17/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Buck Taylor is convincing in his role as Harry Dodds, an aging rancher fighting to hold on to his land, while at the same time struggling to raise his teenage granddaughter. Fans will remember Buck Taylor from his roles as Newly in Gunsmoke and as Turkey Creek Jack Johnson in Tombstone. Samantha Droke is a natural in the role of the granddaughter, bringing an innocent charm to her part. There is a great supporting cast of real-world cowboys, including Barry Tubb, Brad Johnson, and Tommy Guy, all of whom add a sense of authenticity to the film, bringing scenes to life with humor and grit. Oscar winner George Kennedy has a likeable turn in his role as Dr. Peter Gannon.
Truce is truly an international collaboration, written and directed by American Matthew Marconi, with cinematography by Takuji Murata of Japan, and musical score written and conducted by Robert Gulya of Hungary. This is a wonderful film, beautifully shot on cattle ranches in California. Truce brings to mind the colorful history of ranching in America, along with the quest of the modern rancher to preserve a unique and challenging way of life. Moreover, this film is a testament to hard work and determination, and ultimately, to forgiveness and the ability of individuals to evolve."

"This hauntingly beautiful film of ranch life so accurately illustrates the frustration of the small Central Valley rancher who has a heartfelt commitment to the land and his way of life. Anyone even remotely interested in ranch life will be richly rewarded by Buck Taylor's can feel his deep love for the land and his way of life. How many of his struggles did our fathers experience? The gorgeous images of this film will touch many of us. I would recommend it to anyone with a love of the earth."

"One of the FINEST modern American westerns I seen. Buck Taylor is simply amazing as the aging rancher who sees his entire world disappearing faster than his ranch dirt blowing away in the wind. If you've ever been in ol' Harry's boots then you know what I mean. Most folks miss the point of this quiet little film. It's not the land, the cattle or the ranch that is being lost...It is the VERY SOUL of it's owner. Everything he knows, loves and understands is being replaced by man's modern "everything is replacable" attitudes. This film will break your heart and then heal it. Deserves EVERY award that it has won!! Taylor should have an Oscar next to his saddle at home for this impressive simple film."

"the Cowboy hall of fame got one thing right about this movie: it is a cowboy movie. Other than that, I can not understand how it could have garnered the picture of the year award, as it is absolutely terrible on every front: acting, photography quality, sound quality, dialog, plot continuity, everything. We had to discontinue viewing."
