I watch this by accident, wet Sunday waiting for a visitor. Yep plot weird, wife and lover soon forgotten, reason for chase soon lost, wooden was different.

The safari part watching the reindeer herding and their loss in the ravine, the the arrival of the hunting eagles it was interesting, no CGI, pre Gortex and some of the cast could actually ski.

The somewhat novel idea that people are not savages because they have different standards is interesting as is the acknowledgement of how near the brink people living traditional lives can be. The herd is lost so the herders must work for minimum wage in the logging camp to scrape together enough money to start another herd. The situation is the same now for many previously nomadic communities.

How many other films are set in Lapland and feature the Sami and their way of life?

Suspend your disbelief and watch it on a wet Sunday afternoon.
