The story of a boy suddenly alone in the world. The men who challenge him. And the girl who helps him become a man.

Jim Craig has lived his first 18 years in the mountains of Australia on his father's farm. The death of his father forces him to go to the low lands to earn enough money to get the farm back on its feet. Kirk Douglas plays two roles as twin brothers who haven't spoken for years, one of whom was Jim's father's best friend and the other of whom is the father of the girl he wants to marry.

The plot isn't massively interesting to me, but some fine acting alongside terrific cinematography and editing keeps <em>'The Man from Snowy River'</em> going at a positive level.
Tom Burlinson is good as Jim, while Kirk Douglas does a top job in a dual role as Harrison & Spur. The rest of the cast are solid. The storyline is watchable and I did enjoy it, but it just wasn't anything I could sink my teeth into; it's a little plain. However, as noted at the top, I do love how the film is put together; particularly with the horses, across the running shots especially. Australia looks nice, too!
Interested to see where the sequel goes, I assume it'll follow-up directly on the final scene of this one but we'll see. As for this 1982 production, I rate it.
