Lelouch's soap opera Western proves yet again that a man (Caan as a horse doctor) and a woman (Bujold as a French immigrant) will eventually find love and happiness, no matter what contrivances, colour filters or saccharine music the master puts in their way. What other Western accompanies shots of the hero on horseback with the opening chords of Beethoven's Fifth? Who but Lelouch would compound a bilingual script of disarming coyness, peppered with current phrases ('Have a nice day') and historical pinpointers ('It's too bad there's still no way to print pictures in a newspaper'). Not much dramatic interest, but the curiosity value is colossal.
