Storyline

The Bay of Love and Sorrows is a haunting modern tragedy set on the rural shores of New Brunswick's Bay of Miramichi. In late summer 1973, Michael Skid, the son of a well-to-do judge, returns home and rents a dilapidated farm. He begins to spread the gospel of communal ideals, which he has absorbed during his travels in India. His new worldliness and ideas go over well with impoverished siblings Madonna and Silver Brassaurd and the hopelessly naïve Carrie. They go over less well with Tom Donnerel, a young farmer and Carrie's fiancé. Wounded by Tom's derision, Michael befriends ex-convict Everette Hatch, who, recognizing opportunity, exploits Michael's ideas to his advantage. Believing himself capable of understanding people from the other side of the track, Michael fails to recognize that the ex-con is manipulating him and so sets off a catastrophic chain of events in the community.

It takes more than a cigarette to create character!
10 December 2005 | by SkriptmanSee all my reviews

Regrettably, this is the kind of film that taints the perception of other Canadian films as being "so-o Canadian". Dull, myopic and introspective. While some of the performances are strong -- Peter Outerbridge creates chills as a nasty ex-con and Jonathan Scarfe exhibits a competent and natural charm as Michael -- the actors are hamstrung with a lethargic script that starts slow and sputters to a standstill. The writers seem to believe that you create character complexity by reducing their IQs and having them smoke a lot of cigarettes... And I mean A LOT of cigarettes! To make matters worse, there's nary a likable character in the story. With the exception of Michael, they come across as dimwitted, backwoods losers, flawed and with no hope of redemption -- leaving us to wonder what draws the globe-trotting Michael to them in the first place. If the script wasn't slow enough, the lack of any significant score only serves to emphasize and elongate the tedium. I can't understand why the CBC and Telefilm continues to commit $$ to this type of drivel.
