Audience Reviews for Where the Rivers Flow North


In addition to being beautifully photographed and establishing a strong sense of "place", Craven's film is thoughtful, well-paced, and never manipulative. The latter is critical, because it keeps certain scenes from descending into unintended and unnecessary melodrama.
