Product Details


Product Description

After a terrible car accident involving his family, 12-year-old Mark is sent to live with his aunt Fiona (Seymour) on a beautiful and remote island. Isolated from most of the world, Fiona and a park ranger are the only human inhabitants of this wind-swept island, home to herd of wild horses. Her reclusive personality makes Mark's new life on the island difficult but he soon begins to see the beauty of the nature and the animals around them including the horses they are forbidden to touch. When the mother of a young colt is killed, Mark breaks the rules and begins to feed and nurture the young animal. At first Fiona is furious but as she and Mark begin to create their own family bonds, she helps him to keep the horse from starving and each learns lessons from the other about compassion, faith and family ties.

4.0 out of 5 stars touching story Sept. 15 2013
By George Jones TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A hurting, young boy is sent to live with an aunt he doesn't know on an island he's never been to, after a terrible car accident involving his family. Both Mark and his aunt Fiona live in separate worlds and those worlds clash in several ways, right from the beginning. This story takes us on the emotional journey that Mark and Fiona find themselves living, as they try to understand each other and adapt to a situation that neither one of them wants. Hidden things are brought into the light, harshness is softened to acceptance and even affection as the story centers on a herd of wild horses that inhabits the island. Healing comes in the end. Good acting. Beautiful photography. A good story that probably most of the family would enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Touching Wild Horses April 13 2012
By Sandy

I received the movie very quickly. It was in great shape. The quality was excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed the film. I would recommend it to everyone. It is family oriented. Loved the characters. Jane Seymour plays a strong part as usual. The boy is fabulous! I loved the scenery. It was filmed at the Sandbanks in the Picton area. I have walked those beaches and dunes. It was great to see the foot path I have walked. All in all a great experience!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful story paired with breathtaking cimematography Sept. 10 2004
By breyergal - Published on Amazon.com
After a terrible accident rips his family apart, 12-year-old Mark is shipped off to live with his aunt Fiona, whom he has never met. From their first chilly meeting, their relationship seems doomed. Fiona, a reclusive researcher living a hermit-like existance on a windswept island, is quite happy with her life and certainly doesn't welcome the intrusion of a child. She has spent happy, quiet years studying the wild horses who share her island and she quickly makes it clear that she will not allow Mark to endanger her position on the island. For his part, Mark tries his best to please his aunt, although his natural young-boy energies and curiosity tend to push her nerves to the edge.

Eventually, both learn to give a little and their relationship slowly begins to warm, with each learning to enjoy the other, despite their quirks and their lives settle into a comfortable rhythm.

When a sudden storm leaves the newest wild foal orphaned, however, Mark is unable to walk away and allow nature to "take it's course." As Fiona's residence on the island depends on her strict adherence to the law (which forbids any physical contact with the wild horses,) she is forced to choose between her idyllic life and the life of the helpless foal.

Starring Jane Seymour, the beauty of this film lies not just in the heart-warming story, but also in the stunning footage of the island and its lovely equine inabitants.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it Oct. 3 2004
By Rachel Pearson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I am a huge Jane Seymour fan anyway and thought she did wonderfully in this film. I liked the underlying story of how Mark's family died. It kept me guessing. The horses and scenery were beautiful. Even though the story line moved slowly at times, I still liked it. It showed the natural beauty out there. The innocence of the horses was wonderful. I would especially recommend this movie to people who like nature.

4.0 out of 5 stars Touching Wild Horses March 19 2005
By Emily Gillis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I live in Boulder, Colorado and on March 19,2005. I rented the DVD movie of Touching Wild Horses staring Jane Seymour. I enjoyed the movie and all the horses.

But what got me was the way the Aunt started out, rough and un caring but with a little help from a boy and a horse foal named John.The Aunt saw for herself that being caring and opening up does more then acting rough and uncaring. I really also enjoyed the views of Sable Island.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bonding with wild horses and different generations Nov. 21 2009
By Arctic Voice Earl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
We and our two Alaska Huskies settled down during a chilly November night in the Heartland to watch the movie which simply presented a story on an isolated but lovely island with just a few humans and some beautiful wild horses. Nothing high tech and absolutely no long car chases!

The movie met all our expectation --story of a young boy sent to his aunt who works with the horses on the island. His family has a lot of problems and fighting, and one can only hope the quiet island, the aunt and the horses can heal his pain.

But there are glitches, even in the island environment. The boy tries to learn what his aunt (the ever beautiful Jane Seymour) is like and what she expects from him. Also the very simple life, compared with the city.

There is only one other character with any real time in movie ---the wilderness bureaucrat, played by Charles Martin Smith. (He's older than his wilderness bureaucrat in "Never Cry Wolf," but still feisty.)

The horses are in the background for a while, and then an orphaned foal grabs at the boy's heart, and we wondered if all that built up might come crashing down.

Watch the movie, with any pets you might have. You will all enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This movie Touched me. April 2 2009
By Deborah A. Laurent - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I came across the last 30 minutes of this movie on one of the women channels and became so ingrossed with it I had to see the whole movie.

I went to several rental places, unable to either rent or order it. Thank God for Amazon.com.

This movie is so great, I have watched it three times since recieving it. It will become a standard in our home.
