    «I just watched this on a long Air Canada flight from Toronto to Tokyo. Wow, what a gem! It was really touching and I can't wait to show it to my own sons. And great work, NFB for showing the films on flights (I watched them all) and having such a great site and providing access to these little films that might otherwise be forgotten! » — JaniceinTokyo, 24 Aoû 2014

    «When I first saw this movie last year I decided to research the public records and found out that the family generally fared well. Shawn Peter Dwyer and his wife had just published a notice of the birth of their daughter in the local paper, some of his brothers and sisters have moved outside the province for work, and their mother had become a successful and reputed rabbit breeder (she was nicknamed the "Rabbit Lady") and passed away a few years ago. » — Velveeta, 11 Jui 2014

    «This film is a treasure. It truly depicts a family in rural Cape Breton coping well with little material resources but having the most important resource -- a loving home base. It would be great to see the children of this family filmed 'now' to find out how they fared in the years between the filming of the show and now. Excellent work.» — Grammie, 17 Jan 2014
