This movie is not quite a tear jerker but aimed at ones emotions. The acting is good, the cinematography is good and thankfully the dialog is never overwhelmed by music, pretty rare these days. There are a few DUH points in the flick, snake bite at a time snakes are hibernating is not impossible, but being cold blooded it would have to be moving like sap down a tree. The girl playing Jean has a definite Aussie accent, and the film itself seems to have been filmed there as well. I found it to be a bit strung out, but I would probably feel that way about most films that are not action oriented.
