The story is phenomenal on multiple levels but this documentary film's structure, pacing, music, and cinematography make the story unforgettable. It is well-researched and presents frank, honest perspectives from various people who were part of the story. It's a rare case of a film being as enjoyable as the book. If you love horses, then this film is not to be missed. The story is extremely inspiring. A Dutch immigrant (Harry deLeyer) in 1950s New York saves a horse's life by purchasing him for $80 off a truck bound for a slaughterhouse. Many horses were on that truck, but one white horse kept staring at Harry. So Harry chose that horse (Snowman) and intended to use him for farmwork or riding lessons. Unexpectedly, Snowman had a talent for jumping, and he and Harry eventually became world show-jumping champions against impossible odds. Snowman also became part of the deLeyer family. The film attests that Snowman understood Harry had saved his life. You will believe it. The ending was breathtaking. Harry's final sentence will move you. Thank you to the makers of this film and to the author of the book for beautifully immortalizing the story of Harry and Snowman.
