Stunningly beautiful cinematography in Scope! Great sound mix. Filmed on location in beautiful Knowlton, Québec.

Teddy carries the movie quite nicely, he had been a vetran of acting for many years when he appeared in this movie. For the Trekkies of our BA forum, you might recognize the young woman Teddy's character befriends, she played Dr. Pilaski on the Star Trek series Next Generation for I think 1 or 2 seasons, but it don't remember her name. The only part of the movie I found a little hard to believe was his friendship with the "Wild" black bear, even a half grown bear cub would have a dangerous thing to befriend alone and unarmed in the wilderness! other than that, I love this movie and watch it every chance I get!
