Monumental images, exciting cutting techniques and a lot of information – this is an example of nature documentary at its best …. allowing the audience to experience animal behavior unseen before: for example, a bison calf, having fought for survival in a torrential river, now, weak and yet fearless, fights off wolves. Not only have the authors delivered proof of their first-class camera technique, they also manage to tell touching wildlife stories.

Many filmmakers have tried and many have failed – attempting to create films about the Inuit. This filmmaker successfully builds emotional affinity and tells the touching story of dog breeder and musher Harry Okpik. In an icy landscape, she captures images of poetic beauty without downplaying the hardship of life in northern Canada.
