Ship A WALK IN THE CLOUDS to the Great White North, subtract Keanu Reeves and add some postcard-pretty shots of WWII planes in flight. Throw in a couple of choruses of Pachelbel's monumentally tedious Canon
, and you'll get something a lot like FOR THE MOMENT, a wartime
romance set against the featureless plains of Manitoba. Dashing Australian airman Lachlan (Russell Crowe) flies off with the heart of spirited prairie gal Lill (Christianne Hirt), leaving behind the customary residuum of joy and pain. We'll resist the temptation to say something catty about the
National Film Board of Canada, but only because we have relatives in Saskatchewan.
