The Holy Land of Tyrol -- It is spring 1809. Katharina s Tyrolean husband, Franz, is arguing with a French soldier in Augsburg s marketplace. It ends with the soldier dead by accident and the young couple fleeing the city for Franz s homeland. Even on the way it's obvious that the mood in the Alpine land is at breaking point. Bavaria and France, which have occupied the Tyrol for years, are despised, which doesn't guarantee the Bavarian Katharina the warmest of welcomes. She soon misses the warmth and comfort of her family in Augsburg. After so many years away from home, Franz is quickly caught up in the enthusiasm of the independence movement around Andreas Hofer. He calls the Tyrolean farmers to rise up. Before long, Franz marches with his younger brother off to war, leaving Katharina at home. Reliant for the first time only on herself, Katharina undergoes hard times until, finally, she masters the tasks at hands and wins the villagers respect. Against all the odds, the Tyroleans return victorious from their battles. The villagers celebrate. Only Katharina and the village priest recognise that although the night belongs to them, a lasting victory is impossible. Forced to make a decision, Katharina decides to render Franz unfit for battle. But he discovers her plan, their relationship shatters and Katharina is expelled from the farm.

Premise: First came ESPN, then ESPN2, and now, ESPN “3”. Even if you've been stranded in an airport terminal like Tom Hanks for the last three months, you've absorbed some form of promotion for this biopic of the late NASCAR icon Dale Earnhardt. The number of repeat airings this month nearly matches Earnhardt's Winston Cup victory total of 76. But that's not a bad thing, for beyond all the marketing smoke sits a performance by Barry Pepper that's worth celebrating. The quiet intensity Pepper displayed as Roger Maris in “61*” burns again in his portrayal of stock-car racing's “Intimidator.” For the non-NASCARphiles out there, the film's title is the car number Earnhardt made famous. But it also applies to the racing holy trinity that develops in Earnhardt's family as Dale's reckless-but-popular racing style (“second place is just the first loser”) is inherited from father Ralph and passed on to son Dale Jr.
