| Poignant but could have been better
It's the late 1930's and internal combustion mechanisation is taking over from horsepower. This is a road trip of a man and his horse but it could have been so much better, especially the middle section of the film which contributes little. Fascinating from a rural viewpoint as horses, and workers, become obsolete but the acting is rather wooden with poor continuity - it feels as if it was staged by a team used to making silent films, often with exaggerated acting, which of course had also recently become obsolete. Its attitude towards women is also typical of the period.
