Movie Info

Sarah Smith, an artist and government hydrologist, sets out on a post-fire stream survey in a remote Oregon wilderness. During the course of her journey into this ancient and ecologically diverse landscape, she unwittingly finds herself interacting with a sasquatch man, and a mutual curiosity ensues. As their acquaintanceship grows over a period of months, Sarah must take bold steps to protect his privacy, and her own. -- (C) Official Site

Munch never quite reconciles his psychological and environmental themes, but his characters are so richly imagined and the location photography (by his regular cinematographer, Rob Sweeney) is so gorgeous that the movie still casts a rare spell.

"Letters from the Big Man" will mystify some, please others with its serenity, and be unlike any Bigfoot movie you have ever imagined.

Mr. Munch, whose earlier films include "The Hours and Times," handles this efficiently.

Rabe, especially, suggests luminous depths of wisdom and experience with each captivating expression; she helps to focus a film that is otherwise lamentably scattershot.

Even if Big Man draws only a tiny audience, its inspired alignment of personal and ecological loss will disrupt someone's serenity at least a little.

Distinctive, frustrating and somewhat bewildering.

An ambitious, warm-hearted drama about the Sasquatch.
