J. O.'s rating of the film Unterwegs nach Cold Mountain

Overall, this film receives a lot of negative commentary based on it being Oscar bait, or Hollywood trite, but the fact of the matter is that it is a beautiful film. The production design is especially striking, putting the audience directly into the striking beauty of 19th century North Carolina. This lengthy romantic epic echoes the tragedy of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem "Evangeline".
