A lyrical and nostalgic film from director Robert Redford (Quiz Show, Ordinary People), based on the popular autobiographical novel by Norman MacLean, A River Runs Through It shows the best that modern filmmaking has to offer. The film chronicles two brothers coming of age in early-20th-century Missoula, Montana, under the stern tutelage of their minister father, played by Tom Skerritt (Top Gun). Their father instills in them a love of fly fishing, which for one brother (Brad Pitt) becomes a lifelong passion even as he sets out to become a newspaperman and struggles with his addiction to gambling. The other brother, Norman (Craig Sheffer), dreams of exploring the world outside of Missoula as he falls in love with a local girl (Emily Lloyd) who also dreams of broader horizons. Soon one brother must discover the true meaning of family loyalty when the other finds himself in deeper trouble than ever before. Redford, who also narrates the film, does a masterful job in re-creating the period and in drawing out affecting performances from his young cast. An Oscar winner for Philippe Rousselot's luminescent cinematography, this is a poignant and special film. --Robert Lane --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Until the other night I hadn't seen the movie since it was in the theatre. Don't know why it took so long to revisit such a good movie, one that feels even better today than when it was originally released. A great tale that is would be difficult to translate to the screen unless it was in the capable hands of Robert Redford. Montana steals the visuals, the cast are excellent throughout and it is easy to see Brad Pitt as a star in the making. The blu-ray is the best the movie has ever looked, the picture is excellent for an older title and the sound balanced. Who'd have thought a movie about fly fishing, religion and brotherhood would make such as gripping tale but it works on levels. Just a great picture from start to finish.

I have had this DVD/Movie many times ,but,somehow it always disappears when i am not looking ???
It is in the Top Ten of all time FAVES.
As a fly fisher myself I love a movie that tells a beautiful story such as this..I was never a big fan of leading man,Brad Pitt..
but this movie,put me on the watch list 4 his future releases...
I have been a fan of Tom Skerrit and his portrayal as the father figure ,trying to instill is value system on is two sons
is heart rending...especially towards the end when he knows he has failed his son(Pitt).
Of course Pitt is on a course of self destruction and no one is going to stop him,,
The one thing the men in this family has in common is their love of fly fishing...yeah I can dig it..and the portrayal of the fishing scenes is,damn near spot on...you will be mesmerized by the beauty of the RIVER as it carries your past away and CLEANSES YOUR SOUL...
Camera work that is as good as it gets,the surroundings stealing the scenes,good actors...what's not to like ???

This movie is easily on my top five favorite movies of all time. You may call me crazy, because there are a lot of good movies out there, many better known than A River Runs Through It. But it is very rare that a film captures the entire feel and Zeitgeist of a place on earth and in history so well that you are transported there in every sense on the word. When the credits start to roll I can almost feel the time warp, as I slowly begin to realize that I am back in my living room, having spent the last two hours in place the cinematographer has genuinely made come to life. And the story is timeless just by itself. It deals with family, roads we take in life, even love. And it is so well told, with Robert Redford himself reading Norman MacLean's achingly beautiful prose throughout the film as narration, that you cannot help but identify with the characters and feel nostalgic about a simpler life in a simpler world. If you have any doubts about this movie, rent it if you want. I promise you will understand what I mean, because to believe such high praise for something that is afterall just a movie takes a great leap of faith. But I promise you will at least be able to agree that someone in the world could feel that way about this exquisite film.

At once beautiful, touching, and deeply moving, A River Runs Though It is the story of two boys who charistically different, retain a close bond through their love of fishing in their homtown of Missoula, Montana. Brad Pitt(legends of the fall) does an exceptional job as Paul Maclean, a carefree, daredevil type who has a gambling problem. this performance shows that Brad is not just a pretty boy but also an superb actor. Craig Sheffer gives a spellbinding performance as Norman Maclean, Paul's serious, level headed brother. He seems to radiate an auroa of light that is rare in a acting performance. I love this movie because it shows Montana's natural beauty and the love of two brothers that can never be broken. It also potrays the message; "it's a nice day out, let's go fishing" One more thing to fully appriciate this movie you have to see it!

Most negative reviews here grumble about the movie's slowness, which is fair. Yet, despite its lack of event, this nostalgic recollection through one man's memories is a beautiful cinematograph of experience and family values.
At the very least, you'll remember its stunning landscapes for a long time, particularly the powerful and majestic "Blackfoot River" captured immaculately by the same cinematographer as Dangerous Liaisons. Montana must be a pretty state!
Robert Redford's voiceover narration in his silken voice is calm, allowing the poetry of Norman Maclean's written words to carry the emotion: "Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it."
What piqued my attention was its subtheme of the passion for a pursuit -- fly fishing in this case, which is an intrigue to me in itself. As the fishing lines flick and whisk over the whispering river, a low sun sheening the tree-lined horizon, the rhythm of image embraces imagination and meditation. We are close to understanding what Norman means when he says he is "haunted by waters".
By the time the film comes to its lyrically elegiac end, it has touched your heart and made you think. That is perhaps a good reason in and of itself to watch the movie. Personally, I'd even recommend getting the DVD, it's one you'll watch with kids or people who matter to you.
