Another Hallmark movie made for television which has all the elements
that are always included in their presentations. Like basically
everything we see coming from the Hallmark folks, we are taken to
scenic spots of our country, in this case rural Oregon, with its
natural beauty and excellent outdoor quality that translates so well
into the stories at hand.
"The Valley of Light" takes the viewer back to the 1940s at the end of
WWII. Noah, a soldier without work, is surprised to find his younger
brother in jail. He decides to escape from it all, perhaps because what
he experienced overseas in Europe, to a more peaceful setting. He finds
he has an knack for fishing in rivers and streams where he seems to
pull catfish in record numbers. One day he meets Hoke, an older man,
who tells him about his ability to see "angels" and who advises him to
go into the Valley of Light where nice folks live.
At the valley, he finds an ideal place in where to spend time. He
endears himself to the local population where he is regarded as
something of a marvel because, when prompted, he can fish better than
anyone. Noah seems to know where to cast his line with good results. He
meets the lovely widow of a soldier that has committed suicide. Noah
seems to have everything he hoped for, yet, tragedy strikes taking a
young boy who he feels responsible for his untimely death.
As directed by Brent Shields, this film fits perfectly in what is
expected from the sponsor. Was it me, or didn't Chris Klein, who plays
Noah, kept reminding us of Keanu Reeves? Mr. Klein doesn't show the
intensity that perhaps Mr. Reeves would have brought to his role, but
he is adequate. Lovely Gretchen Mol is perfectly sweet as Eleanor, the
young widow who awakens to love after being so lonely. Others in the
cast include the excellent Robert Prosky, Jay O. Sanders, Stephen
Tobolowsky, in a small pivotal role, Zach Mills and Kevin Chamberlin.
This is a film that while not breaking any ground, will delight the
audience for which is targeted..

Heartwarming-Heartbreaking Glimpse Of Yesteryear....
The cinematography in this movie gives the soul the space and wings to
soar! The rivers and lakes are swarming with schools of fish, skirted
by beautifully dense woods filled with chirping crickets. The lush
green pastures with rich black earth are ripe with enormous wiggling
worms - great pickin' for fish-bait.
The characters and the plot are heartwarming - yet heartbreaking.
A handsome WWII soldier wandering the countryside trying to outpace the
grief that dogs his every step since returning stateside.
A pretty widow with a warm heart who takes loving care of her deceased
husbands' brain-addled aged grandmother.
A lonely young mute boy, makes one wonder if it is perhaps from his
young mother's death or his runaway fathers abandonment of him.
The town and it's cast of characters are quite charming - they make one
long to move to this little friendly town in the valley of yesteryear.
Throw in a mess of fishin' to boot and this is a MARS & VENUS Movie.
The finale of this movie gives ones' soul hope and that's no tall tale.
Don't let this movie be - "The One That Got Away"!.
