Ring of Bright Water
Try this one on for size -- a movie that's "otterly" fantastic. A world-weary Londoner gets a new lease on life when he purchases a domesticated otter at a pet store. Leaving the hustle and bustle of the city behind, the pair relocates to the beautiful Scottish highlands, where the man falls in love with a rural physician and the otter sires a family in the wild. Based on the memoirs of Gavin Maxwell.
