      The Man from

      Snow Burrows fell in love with the mountains and grazing grasslands of southeastern Australia, where the climate is changing rapidly, and the horse herders are hard-working and brave.

      A Review of < The Man from Snowy River >

      The film recreates the life of Australia's pioneers, as well as the natural beauty of the Australian alpine jungle and the hero of the herdsmen. There is no doubt that this movie has its drawbacks as well as merits.

      I like horses since I was a child, so I once copied Xu Beihong's galloping horse. When I saw the majestic galloping horse in the movie, I was still agitated in my heart. The male protagonist is handsome, the female protagonist. . . In comparison, there are still many beauties in...
