4.0 out of 5 stars Not all Gems Sparkle Like Gold. Feb. 18 2004
By tvtv3
Format:VHS Tape
When I first sat down to watch GREY OWL, I thought to myself, "You've got to be kidding. Pierce Brosnan as an Indian?". It didn't seem to fit. Of course, I grew up watching Brosnan as Remmington Steele so him in any role other than one of class seems out of place. However, as I was swept into the world of the movie, I actually began to believe that Brosnan was Grey Owl, aka Archie. He seemed a little different than other Native-Americans, but not so different that he seemed totally out of place. By the time the movie ended and after I had done a little research about Grey Owl, I felt Brosnan had done a wonderful job and had been perfectly cast.
GREY OWL is a film directed by Sir Richard Attenborough and tells part of the story of Grey Owl, aka Archie, a Canadian Indian who began a conservation crusade to protect the native wildlife of Canada in the early twentieth century. However, Grey Owl has a secret that once revealed threatens everything he has fought to perserve.
The movie itself is engaging and has a great story to tell. It's filled with beautiful images of nature and has a strong message. GREY OWL is a film that is often overlooked, but after watching it, I am reminded that not all gems sparkle like gold.

5.0 out of 5 stars A GEM HANDLED WITH PASSION March 9 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Pure poetry in motion is Richard Attenborough's GREY OWL, a beatifully acted and filmed true account story. Although some may consider Pierce Brosnan an aquired taste, here he taps into the talent he displayed years ago in an early John McTiernan film - NOMADS. Not only does Brosnan rely on the 'less is more' fundamentals - he also seems to color the character of Archie Grey Owl(a man with a past) with a pathos seldom seen by todays top box office male stars. As for Attenborough's direction - it to is careful, deliberate and completely poetic. As he did in CHAPLIN, Attenborough incorporates vintage footage into the story to create a perfect 'true story' feel. The Canadian backdrop is filmed with a glorious reverence. Nothing is pompous or 'lugubrious' about this film, as another reviewer stated. Instead, the thrust of this picture is one of heartfelt grandure -- told with a very delicate hand with extremely convincing performances all around. Sure there is a subplot - but it takes the viewer on a journey with the character and provides ample emotion and tension. Annie Galipeau plays a young modern native Canadian, who sees in Archie a chance to connect to ancient roots and feelings. She brings to her character a sense of passion for things only known as legend and provides a soothing metaphor for Brosnans hiddeness and angst. A scene involving Grey Owl and the elders of several Indian Nations hits with such force it invokes emotion not seen much in todays multi-plex market. Although this film seems to have gone straight to the shelves -- it seems far more worthy of a big screen outing than so many other lesser and far more cliched efforts.

3.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Good Feb. 13 2005
Format:VHS Tape
I'm not usually a Pierce Brosnan fan but after I got over my initial doubts about him playing a Native Indian, I actually started to really get into this movie. Maybe it is somewhat romaticized but the underlying message of this film is more Important than ever.It was a refreshing change from other movie genres...I especially liked the Baby Beavers who are super cute
A must for animal and nature lovers-D

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved the movie July 9 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
My husband and I both love this somewhat romanticized version of Grey Owl and his beautiful wife Anahareo. Contrary to other opinions contained herein, we felt Annie Galipeau gave an excellent performance. She did receive a best actress award for her role. Ignore the naysayers. See the movie. Then find and read the books.
