A real gem of a film.
Verified purchase
A beautiful film from all angles. The Gold Coast of Queensland, Australia acts as the Montana setting and the scenery is beautiful with a clarity of light that enhances the excellent camera work and direction.

Taken from the book by Penelope Williamson the action has been pared down to concentrate on the growing love between a widow - Rebecca (Naomi Watts) from a strict Mennonite sect and the Outsider (Tim Daley) of the title. The Outsider, Johnny Galt is a shootist and gambler who killed his first man at the age of 14 and has been killing ever since, admitting that he is good at it. Daley portrays the character perfectly changing from the dangerous man to one who shows an unexpectedly tender side especially in his treatment of Rebecca's son Benjo. Alone all his life, trusting no-one and belonging nowhere he has a hunger for love and not just the physical desire he develops for Rebecca. He has come into her life, badly wounded and though she is going against the wishes of her church she tends him.

Rebecca's husband was hanged by the local cattle baron who wants the sheep farmers off the range and will do anything to get rid of them. Johnny, to Rebecca's horror offers to kill him for her but her beliefs argue strongly against it. At the bottom she hopes to change Johnny from his killing ways, but he wants to protect her. There is love and desire but also conflict between them.

Altogether a lovely film, excellent acting, direction, music, . This French DVD has an English language version but with, most unusually, French subtitles which cannot be switched off. Pity, but it is still worth it.

Not your typical western. More of a slow burning romance story. Mills & Boon anyone! Still, it was well acted and put together nicely. Some nice cinematography for a TV movie. Not a lot of gunfire sadly. I had read the reviews which seem to all be for the region 1 offering and wrongly assumed this to be the same. Sadly it's not. It's a French release. No extras and the English soundtrack version had French subtitles burnt in. Didn't matter what I did, I couldn't get rid of them. A tad annoying. I should have paid more attention when I was reading the spec's. My bad! Anyhoo, it will kill a rainy Sunday afternoon no problem.

This DVD was French, but sadly unlike all other DVDs it had just French and original version WITH FRENCH SUBTITLES! There was no way to get rid of the subtitles and believe me I tried! There was no programme of languages, subtitles, etc, just play movie. I was very disappointed. I will have to buy this again from elsewhere as I cannot bear to watch it with the subtitles.

Brilliant western romance!! Sadly rarely available
Verified purchase
Amazon are missing a trick here by not making this film available to UK market. I have seen it but would purchase except it is only available in Region 1. Very under rated romantic western which I just happened to come across on youtube. Great acting by Tim Daly and Naomi Watts who were both entirely convincing in their roles. A shout out too for actor who plays Rebecca's (Naomi Watts) son. The sort of film which takes a very long time to tire of watching.

Nice film but not spectacular
Verified purchase
Religious widow meets man of the world (in this case a gunfighter) is not an original story line and I think it would have have benefited from more information about the sect concerned. Nice film but not spectacular. This version was packaged for the French speaking market - there is the original English version as an option to watch but, irritatingly, it has French subtitles which I haven't been able to switch off.

Made for tv western .
Fairly slow moving western with good acting from the female lead which lifts the film to a three star review.
The carradine brother's are wasted in this as there roles are only incidental and don't add any real strength to the movie which is a real shame.
The whole movie is set up like the classic western shane with alan ladd but sadly misses almost on every level.
Good points -- fairly well acted , good cinema photography and its shot well.
Very little gun play which is a shame -- i think the ladies will like the male lead "' but this can't lift a fairly average western.

Very dull, one dimensional plodding movie; ludicrously scored, poorly scripted and badly acted. The false beards added a comic element, presumably unintentional. For anyone thinking of watching this, watch instead the magnificent film Shane, directed by George Stevens.

Meaningful movie, the story of so many people who have no control about their emotion, takes courge. this movie works hard to balance
