Cast & Crew
Carroll Ballard's feature debut is rich in adventure, suspense and mythical elements and marks the prize-winning short-subjects director as a major talent.
Deepens into a far more powerful entertainment through matchless cinematography and talented supporting players.
A magnificently well-crafted movie.
The film represents a studied, sophisticated approach to instinctual emotions: it's carefully, calculatingly naive, and amazingly it works.
