The next A River Runs Through It?

Coming to a theater near you Salmon Fishing in the Yemen the movie.  This adaptation of Paul Torday's 2007 novel Salmon Fishing in the Yemen premiered at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival this week.   No release date for general audiences, but CBS Films acquired the U.S.distribution rights.

Here is the plot according to the Wikipedia. "A fisheries scientist finds himself reluctantly involved in a project to bring salmon fishing to the wadis of the Highlands of Yemen, and change British political history and the course of his life."

Will this be the next A River Runs Through It? I don't know, but they do need to practice their casting.


  1. I made a post about this film last night when I first came across it, but I wasn't as nice as you were :)

  2. There's not much to review. I found it comedic, with the camera angle and poor detail to angling. Few get it right.
