| Slow moving, bit of a downer
The story behind the sickly title: an old French woman looks back on her time as a schoolteacher in a Canadian prairie town, and her love for a fifteen-year-old boy who is part Indian, and as such is the subject of racist remarks.

This TV movie is touching in a weepy sort of way but it fails to be dramatic. However the prairie life and depression-era were evoked well. A bit too innocent for my liking though.

The characters are all 2D and the script is very cheesy and cliché. Saying that, if you like Nicholas Sparks' novels, you will probably enjoy this. However, be prepared for weeping.
