Summary: I have found myself easily distracted when watching films lately but this film really kept my attention. A good cast and an interesting and original story line. Politics, romance a splash of tear jerking and some good British comedy all rolled into one. Well worth a watch.
Excerpt: Watched the movie first and then read the book. Preferred the movie ending but only because it was happier and more of a fairytale and less like real life. The book is wonderful and so is the movie... well acted and very humorous in parts. Brilliant subtle author.
Summary: Superbly laid back pace with gentle humour and likeable characters - which most of us watch due to the polarised difference between it and big action/FX movies. The only problem with the storyline is the concept of changing the lifestyle of Salmon. Most unlikely.
Good film, shame Love Film don't take care to check and clean discs before sending them out

Summary: Really good film, ruined by the fact that the disc jumped and at one point was unreadable. Had to clean it using our own disc cleaner and was still only marginally better. So sick of films being ruined by scratched discs.
Summary: A film that is and does exactly what it says on the tin, salmon fishing is indeed "theoretically possible" in the Yemen. A witty and culturally cumulative effort from Chocolat director Lasse Hallström has made this quite an enjoyable flick that it quite easy to like, save for its flaws and high note drama.
