I liked this much better the first (and only) time I watched it.

I will try to write something down tomorrow.


Rating: (pushing pretty hard for a) 5/10

No, it seems I wrote earlier it was boring as hell in another thread... Tomorrow.

So I was right not shelling 3 euros for it yesterday. Brosnan as an Indian, my god.

Yeah, he's pretty weak and unconvincing here.

This ain't much of a W anyway, it's a very TV-like bio-drama, I guess interesting only in those interested in the life and times of Archie Grey Owl, or Pierce Brosnan.

The actress playing his wife is beautiful. If I ever saw a beautiful Indian woman on screen, that's her. Her name's Annie Galipeau.

There's the environmental component, that's perhaps worthy of notice, but it's pretty lame. (Who'd say the director is (Sir) David Attenborough's bro, eh?)

Actually, it came to me only now: Brosnan is playing a Brit who is pretending to be an Indian. An unprecedented effort from Piercie-boy. :D
