A rare poetical masterpiece
24 February 2002 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

This rare movie, with a photography by Hans Scheim who had worked with Leni Riefensthal is perhaps the Inuit testimony. It tells the contest between two rivals for the love of an Inuit woman. The forces of nature will decide the winner. Beautifully shot in summer with Inuit actors, its story comes from anaold Inuit legend. Traditional eskimo culture is embodied such as the singing contest to make the opponent laughed at by the audience. Hope a DVD shall be released to make this masterpiece widely available at last.
