(Ok, that's actually a quote from Terry Pratchett, but it's apt.)

For anyone looking for one of those edge-of-your-seat, nail-biting-excitement suspense/mystery blockbusters, this won't be your cup of tea. It is paced slowly, contemplatively, so that the viewer can absorb of the implications of the story as the drama unfolds. It's a murder mystery, yes, but it goes where few in this genre are willing to go - to search out the very marrow of death and its significance.

Roy Dupuis delivers a characteristically excellent and nuanced performance as a detective, struggling with his own demons whilst attempting to solve a 150-year-old murder. Jane McGregor is adequate in her role as the archaeologist brought on to the case who has a secret of her own.

It's a thoughtful, careful movie, beautifully filmed. Particularly gratifying is the use of doubling (ok, this isn't a technical term, but then, I'm not a film scholar, just an enthusiast). Robert Budreau excellently parallels the personal struggles of his protagonists by seamlessly shifting the story lines with visual cues.

The only flaw I found was that the soundtrack was at times overwrought, overpowering the performance of the actors. A good soundtrack should underscore, not overwhelm, the action on screen.

Overall, a very good, intellectually-stimulating film with the perfect amount of dramatic tension to keep story line flowing.

I came across this film by accident and had no reviews or synopsis to tell me what this film whas about. All i knew was that roy Dupuis was the lead actor and since I had enjoyed his work on La Femme Nikita I decided to take a chance.
Unlike Dupuis stoic charactor " Michael " on LFN, in this film his role of Dect. Conk Adams willingly expresses his emotions.
Hereis a story of two fragile people drawn together on a murder case that soon becomes something else entirely and they become close. Not really lovers but more than friends and share an emotional bond.
The ending came as a total surprise, so simple it should have been expected but you are so involved in what is happening you don't even think of what is to come until it happens.
There is no real " Happy Ever After " here only a bittersweet release. Dupuis gives an excellent performance and this film is truely deserving of a look.

This film by Robert Budreau had tremendous opportunity and with Roy Dupuis and Gordon Tootoosis, it should have been a Genie contender hands down. Unfortunately, the pace of the movie was slow and the plot was disjointed. I didn't hate it, but I was disappointed. I think Roy can always sell a character but the chemistry didn't seem to be there with Jane. I thought about it for a while afterward and instead of a romantic chemistry, it seemed to be more of a "parental" type interest and concern. Which is okay considering the story being told about the bog. I felt that Jane's character was supposed to be likeable and you are supposed to identify with her, but I just didn't feel it. Again, it may just be because the story seemed to be missing vital parts. I think if you are a Roy Dupuis fan you should check it out, but be prepared that it is not "The Rocket" or "Memoire Affective." It is a nice character study with Roy playing the lead and it might have been even better if it had just been him... Just my opinion and we all have one! :)

Format: DVD
A haunting tale of tormented characters plagued by their pasts and the secrets consuming them, That Beautiful Somewhere follows two troubled souls struggling to find meaning with their lives and a way to heal their physical and mental pain. While the film expertly dissects the two leads and their minds and motives, it unfortunately takes its time to delve into the complex character development and often lingers on every moment, no matter its degree of poignancy, creating a cumbersome pacing that may be too slow for today's less-than-patient moviegoer.

Detective Conk Adams (Roy Dupuis) is assigned to help young archaeologist Catherine Nyland (Jane McGregor) discover the identity and cause of death of a mummified body found in a local bog in the snowy depths of Canada. At first he disregards the scientist's notions of the bog's curative powers and the supposed murder, but soon grows to value and appreciate the time he spends with her. After running several tests on the corpse, Catherine slowly begins to uncover its identity and searches for the truth behind the myths of the Native American healing ritual that may have lead to its death. Wishing to use the healing powers of the bog herself, she and Conk track down a reclusive Indian who holds the final clues to the body's identity as well as the shocking path that both tortured souls will eventually travel.

Beautifully shot exteriors and snowy forested scenery almost make up for the dragging pace the film chooses to adopt. While the presentation is top notch, the film crawls at times and makes several attempts to go somewhere beautiful, and then doesn't.
