This movie's only problem is that it requires a contact with some of the elements portrayed in it: the place, the weather, the bears, the furs, the protagonists (fur trappers or aboriginals). The movie is great because because it does not pretend to be : it just delivers on its premise, a man in the wilderness! The cinematics is beautiful, and even if one could wish on going in deeper in the psyche of the main characters, maybe you just can't, maybe things are more simple than our techno-psychological outlook of modern society hides from us. ANd that is what makes this an incredible movie. It's plain crazy and believable, the pinnacle of human spirit and and it's loathsomeness.
