I caught the second half of this move late at night on TCM. I really enjoyed the beautiful scenery of the Lapp people and their folk costumes. The vistas behind the actors was breathtaking. I also enjoyed watching how integral the reindeer was in their culture. They reindeer pulled the sleds and pulled the people on skies. They showed the dwellings of the Lapp people and a traditional wedding. I live in Southern California, so I have never seen anything like this. Most exciting was knowing that nothing was computer-generated like today. It was a wonderful glimpse into the past. The plot, though a little thin and a bit predicable compared to today's films, was still interesting and moved quickly enough to keep interest.
