Movie Reviews

Buy the video not the dvd
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a lovely little film. I liked this movie since my first viewing. But there is a new version on dvd that has ruined it. They've cut out 25 minutes, including the recitation of High Flight and the singing of Waltzing Matilda, high points in the movie.
So don't be fooled. Buy it on VHS."

"Before seeing this film, I was unaware of the training experiences of the Allied forces in Canada. I enjoyed the historical aspects of the film, as well as the beautiful scenery of Manitoba. The story was bittersweet; for in war time, some people are torn apart while others are thrown together. This movie also illustrated that very well. Russell Crowe manages to convey such subtle nuance in his work, and this film is no exception. This is a keeper; one I enjoy viewing when I want to smile through my tears."
Above average (3 1/2) from here on in the Spree

"Opinions, here's mine. This is a foreign film, foreign as in they consider film an art form not an industry (thanks Sam Mendes)This is a story of another time, where the pace people lived at was different than now. That fact needs to be apparent from the beginning of the film. The Pachelbel Canon is a beautiful choice for flying music when you don't have a big budget. I liked these characters. I felt for their situations and understood how you could get there. Top of my list of scenes: Russell Crowe reciting "High Flight" it was done beautifully. I'd like to see and hear him do Shakespeare. One of the other reviewers said they felt the character of Lill was "wooden". Was she? Or was it her character trying to resist Lachlan? I felt like she knew, from the beginning, she could never give in totally to him . In just a few weeks he'd be gone, like her husband, who she had loved too. So, was she "wooden" or was she just saving a part of herself so she could survive sending these people she loved off to war?I did enjoy "Waltzing Matilda". On the whole it was a sweet movie more of what you would have expected from the 1940's... and wasn't that the idea. They threw in more current concerns as homosexuality and racism which makes it more 1990's. Nice film."
