The scene I like best in this movie is that of the barn-raising, when the whole community gathers to build a barn for a newlywed couple, and it's a beautiful summer's day and everyone sits down at long trestle tables laden with food -- it's just so idyllic (and probably a long way from an accurate portrayal of Amish life, but still...). I love the music, and the on-screen chemistry between the main protagonists; the sweeping views of the beautiful farmlands; and the late Alexander Godunov's debut as an actor in the supporting role of Daniel Hochleitner, who comes to woo Kelly McGillis's character of Rachel Lapp. In the late 70s/early 80s, I was very much interested in ballet, and Godunov and Baryshnikov were the outstanding dancers in those days. When Witness came to our cinemas, the inclusion of Godunov's name on the posters was a major pull for me.
