An offence to the Amish

Weir, an Australian filming in this country for the first time, has succumbed to blandness.

It's pretty to look at and it contains a number of good performances, but there is something exhausting about its neat balancing of opposing manners and values.

Harrison Ford has never given a better performance in a movie.

Playing John Book allowed viewers the opportunity to see Ford the actor instead of Ford the action/adventure icon. It is one of the few times he has been given the opportunity to play in a straight drama.

It's got some action, some romance, a few drips of comedy, and a lot of fascinating insight into a culture we know very little about.

Taut drama has just a few moments of intense violence.

Combustible Celluloid

Fish-out-of-water stories were very popular for a while in the 1980s, but none had the classical resonance of this powerful Oscar-nominated drama.

Movie Eye

Weir's fish-out-of-water cop drama radiates marvelously as both a culture-clash romancer and as a compelling crime caper

Witness warms up as the attraction builds between Ford, McGillis and Haas -- all performing excellently through this portion.

Poetic and moving film about the collision between two worlds incarnated in a big city cop and an Amish woman.

Humanizes the conflict of peace versus the arguable necessity of violence.

Ford is on top of his form, underplaying his role throughout and never mugging it up for the cameras.
