Product Description

Scotland, 1745. Young Euan (Lewis Rae) is forced to join a Jacobite war party when he sees its leader (Fish) murder a local innkeeper. Concerned for his son's safety, Euan's father Alistair (Mathew Zajac) has no choice but to join up as well. However, when his party is attacked by Hanoverian troops Euan switches sides, a fatal decision which will eventually see father and son facing each other across the battlefield, fighting on opposite sides at the 1746 battle of Culloden.

4.0 out of 5 stars An amazing achievement 20 Sep 2006
This film was sponsored by private individuals and companies - it's not a big studio release. Any independent British-made historical epic would be an amazing achievement, but this film could actually hold its own against the commercial competition. Without a big budget, the film focusses on the acting. The film begins in 1715 after the Battle of Sheriffmuir, then jumps to the arrival of Prince Charles Edward Stuart in Scotland in 1745. We follow the Jacobites to Edinburgh and then to Derby and their humiliating retreat back to face the Hanoverian army on Culloden Moor outside Inverness. A personal story is woven into this epic narrative. The film gives a balanced portrayal of both sides of the conflict, although I was a little disappointed that it did not carry on to look at the destruction of the Highlands. The battle scenes are realistic, under the circumstances, and were performed by battle recreationists rather than actors.

The most disappointing feature of this DVD is the quality of the picture - it looks as if it has been transferred from VHS tape. Strangely the picture quality of the theatrical trailer is better than that of the main picture.

4.0 out of 5 stars a good flick 6 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase
A journalist from 'Variety' has panned it. But I like it. This is probably no blockbuster. Still, for a Frenchman like me who is not so deeply versed in British history, 'Chasing the deer' unveils a not so well known (on this side of the channel) episode of Anglo-Scottish relations.
