Audience Reviews for Melanie
An early Canadian film - but about an family from Arkansas. I was attracted to the movie as I saw that Burton Cummings was in the cast. It is a feel-good story of a mom who sets out to the big city to retrieve her son who has been kidnapped by her husband. The story is fine, but the filming is pretty bad -- scenes where you cannot hear the dialogue because of the background noise, and some really fuzzy scenes (which did not feel like they were put there on purpose). It is good that Burton stuck to music and did not go into acting in a big way.More
