Then, the whale shows up. According to Bill (Graham Greene) the orca is the spirit of Mike's father. Mike isn't sure, but he knows the tribe has to save the whale and possibly save it from the machinations of the Canadian fisheries Department.
This story is based on a true tale. The acting is superlative, what can you say about Beach, Greene, and Cardinale that hasn't already been said? The scenery is gorgeous, too. The film was made in the Vancouver, BC area and no place is as gorgeous. The movie is clearly made for television. You can see the rough cuts between scenes, which is pretty distracting to the flow of the story. In addition, teh soundtrack is a disappointment. Plus, the music is occasionally overmodulated and too loud to know what is going on.

This movie is based on a real incident that we followed as it was happening. [At the time we lived in 'Hollywood North,' Vancouver, BC.] I think people who like nature or who are interested in various cultures will find this movie to be well worth watching.
We are using it in a film festival for those reasons.

This movie is not what I'd hoped it would be. The documetary was so excellent. I should have known better than to expect this movie to be as wonderful as the documentary.Published 20 months ago by Bonnie Gale Wolgamot
