Engaging documentary about Buck Brannaman, the horse trainer who inspired the THE HORSE WHISPERER. Not only is it a fascinating look at the world of horse training, but it's also a deeply humane portrait of a wounded man who found solace and healing in the horses he cared for, who became as much a help to him as he is to them.
A documentary about a master horse trainer which is also one of the wisest films about human beings I've ever seen.
Buck Brannaman is a quiet, self-effacing hero. After seeing "Buck" and meeting the man briefly at a Q&A after a screening, I wouldn't hesitate to audit one of his training sessions to watch the man at work - and I've never owned a horse.
This is a touching documentary that has much to say about the connection between man and animals. Buck Brannaman's gentle compassion and empathy for the horses he works with yields amazing results. An inspirational film.
