Jean Le Bête (Oliver Reed) is an intimidating fur trapper who comes to a small mining town in British Columbia in search of a wife. Having travelled for 3 days from his remote trappers hut Jean has to settle for a mute girl, Eve (Rita Tushingham), who has not spoken since her own family suffered at the hands of Indians when she was a young girl. The initial hostility between Jean and Eve thaws and the slowly changing relationship between the trapper and his mute partner is both touching and fragile.

Period interest only - The Trap review by TE

Spoiler Alert
09/01/2021

Something of an oddity in the film career of Rita Tushingham. She rolls her eyes and gurns her way through her role as a young mute woman on the grim frontier in British Columbia in the early 19th century.

At least she didn't have to learn any lines.

Her co-lead is Oliver Reed, who hams it up in his usual irritating way, guffawing crazily and doing his best Desperate Dan impressions. His accent is meant to be that of a French trapper, but it changes from one scene to the next, with a heavy emphasis on cod-Irish.

The glorious Canadian scenery is the best reason for watching this strange Mills & Boon rom-com.
