"The Manzanar Fishing Club'' has enough interesting footage for perhaps a 15-minute segment of a TV news magazine.

All this is welcome; all this is too little. The Zen appeal of a river running through it is at best postcard-pretty, and not much deeper.

Some of the stories of ingenuity - whether in creating fishing equipment out of scavenged materials or hiding their activities from authorities - are amusing or moving.

The historical road less traveled-shot in re-enactments that are obviously familiar with the terrain-is beguiling enough.

Ingeniously, and warmly, looks at a surprising chapter in the story of an internment camp in Eastern California.

At its best, the film uses fishing as a window into the internment experience. At its worst, it uses the internment story as the backdrop for a documentary on trout fishing.
