REVIEWS

Review by Dale Haas (posted on 27-Feb-2005)

This isn't your usual romantic comedy. Set in the burning forests of the Pacific Northwest, it pits a brash, cocky firefighter pilot (Richard Dreyfuss) against a spunky air traffic controller (Holly Hunter) until the pilot is killed on a mission. But the story only begins there.

With the help of one of the pilot's friends (John Goodman), an angel (Audrey Hepburn), and a new suitor (newcomer Brad Johnson), both the deceased and the one left behind learn to love again.

One of Steven Spielberg's most personal and underrated works, the film is at once dreamy and giddy, somber and light. It is shot with great attention to mood and effect, but as always, the director never gives in to sentimentality. Like with all Spielberg films, the theme is redemption, but this time it is on an intensely personal, romantic level.

Whether you're a Spielberg fan or not, if you want to explore the eternal weight of the love between men and women, this film is not to be missed.
