Product Description

Western Canada, 1942. A handsome Australian named Lachlan (Russell Crowe of The Quick and the Dead, Virtuosity, Gladiator) and other pilots in-training from around the world have the earth below them and a dark cloud over their heads: the life expectancy of a World War ll bomber pilot is six weeks. Now more than ever these brave young men reach out to seize the day. And with each day, loves can form, hearts can break, memories can be forged that will last generations. This "gorgeous-looking, romantic drama" (The Hollywood Reporter) explores the tender wartime romance between Lachlan and a lonely Manitoba farm girl (Christianne Hirt). It glows with the heart-tugging passion of a love that's inevitable yet doomed, and like the pilots and lives it celebrates, it soars.

If you are a Russell Crowe fan or a fan of the movie you can finally purchase the entire film on dvd from Amazon. I would not recommend purchasing the used dvds without contacting seller as previously this dvd was missing several whole scenes...this re-release is complete. A wonderfully done movie ... it is sad and sweet. A snapshot of one of the lesser known sides of WWII. The characters are endearing and funny, the plot moves along well and there is some wonderful photography. For Crowe fans his recital of "High Flight" is worth the purchase, not to mention a young Mr. Crowe at his most charming. NOt for those looking for an action war movie it is most definitely for the romantics out there.

I have ordered FOR THE MOMENT (a good small Canadian movie with a pre-stardom Russell Crowe) from a reseller through Amazon.ca and I have received the wrong copy of the movie. As soon as I opened the package, I knew something was wrong.
1. The DVD cover picture was not the one I had seen on Amazon.ca.
2. The aspect ratio is 1.33:1 instead of the original anamorphic 1.85:1 stated in the description. I JUST HATE FULLFRAME PAN & SCAN EDITIONS OF WIDESCREEN MOVIES.
I have no idea WHY this stupid aspect ratio is STILL in existence except for stupid people who have no idea or just don't care what an aspect ratio is.
Too bad cause I know this is a great movie.
I tried several times to get in touch by phone with the reseller with no success.
Ans it's nearly impossible to leave a message on their voicemail.
My advice to anyone buying movies from a reseller through Amazon.ca or .com : Make sure to specify in details the product you order.

Here's a chance to see Russell Crowe before he became a big star, in a Canadian film that actually takes place in Canada.
The scene is a pilot training base near Winnipeg that trained pilots from Commonwealth countries and the U.S. during WWII. A lot of the drama hinges on the fact that these pilots had an average life expectancy of six weeks when they went into combat. Thus the pilots and those they loved learned to live "for the moment", as this film dramatises.
Crowe is in charming mode as the Aussie trainee who falls for the young wife of a pilot already away at war.
While overly earnest and somewhat clicheed in spots, this is a touching film that reminds us of the sacrifices made both by those who fought in World War II and the loved ones they left at home.

Russell Crowe made this film just before his United States of America debut in L.A. Confidential (1997). Very nice and beautifully-filmed film set in West canada in 1942. Pilots-in-training find love with very nice women. Russell Crowe plays "lachlan" who is from Australia. He begins a nice friendship with a women (Christine Hirt) on a farm. it becomes a tender, forbidden romance. Lachlan wanted love and found it, even if it was for the moment. Incidentally, Russell Crowe found love too. In 2003, he married Danielle Spencer, whom he worked with in The Crossing (1990). They now have a newborn son.
