| A must see. Absolutely gripping.
This is an incredibly good movie series. The characters are complex, gutsy, well defined and you fall in love with them, warts and all. It is almost like watching your own family members deal with tragedy after tragedy. It is about the grim realities of life in Canada in a fishing village perhaps 200 years ago. Death stalks in many ways. I have great admiration for my ancestors to have made it through times like this. I know I never could.

I would have given the movie my first 10 were in not some glaring anachronisms where for some idiotic reason there are a few scenes with a female actor in modern makeup complete with pencilled eyebrows.

You would think a movie about salting fish would be boring as all get out, but I can't think of a movie that drew me in more so that it felt like it was part of my own life. It is a heart wrenching combination of the achingly beautiful and utterly unbearable. It is not in the least predicable or boring. It feels like real life.

"When boys first go to bed, They step into their voluntary graves, Sleep binds them fast; only their breath Makes them not dead: Successive nights, like rolling waves, Convey them quickly, who are bound for death." ~ George Herbert, Mortification
