I enjoyed this "little" Canadian crime film. Interesting to see the lead play a character with at least a few human qualities. Who can forget his effort in Fargo (head first into the wood chipper my old pal!).

I didn't like this film at all. I wouldn't recommend it.
I especially disliked the loud music playing throughout the film.

Offbeat Canadian film about murder in a small Ontario town, and how it affected the residents. I liked it.

Violence lies beneath the surface of a small town in Ontario, but the real star is a fascinating Mennonite culture that provides a unique setting.

This movie dragged on like a low-budget, boring, Canadian, made-for-TV film. Better off watching Murdoch Mysteries; at least they have some humour in them and some historical value.

The music was inappropriate, loud, and downright unpleasant.

In its favour, we did watch the whole 75 minutes without turning it off....

An excellent film. Consider the title, Small Town Murder Songs. The pace and rhythms of a small town are "slow" and predictable (usually). The slow routine is the backdrop of all the drama of the characters.The film captures it perfectly. Murder, so rarely happens that it is the police chiefs first. Songs. Songs about murder? The songs are the few bible verses. This movie is beautifully shot, excellently edited; elegantly directed. and acted. This is not a whodonit, but a beautiful and intense character study. It is above all a call to examine our choices and how these choices affect others.

Trying to be profound by being less exciting and interesting than the death of an ant.

Sexual Content: Partial nudity of a slain woman, and a brief scene in a strip bar also showed some nudity.
