Good family film
A rarity among independent films, Passage To Ottawa is a family drama, suitable for kids and engaging enough to keep adults interested. Omi (Nabil Mehta) is a seven-year old East Indian boy sent to live with relatives in Ottawa when his mother falls ill. He believes he is on a quest to find a super-hero who will save his mother. Roland, (Jim Codrington) the captain of a local tour boat seems to fit the bill. The two form an emotional connection, as Roland begins a romance with Safia, (Amy Sobol) Omi's lively cousin. Nice naturalistic performances from a mixed cast of amateurs and professionals coupled with sure handed direction from India-born, Russian trained, Canadian resident Gaurav Seth add up to a sweet family movie, that champions the virtues of multi-culturalism. Recommended.
