This film is a great fun to watch!!
27 January 2001 | by (South Korea) – See all my reviews

Maybe I've seen this film for about 5-6 times so far. But it seems that I would never get bored. I just love animal movies which are involved with dogs or wolves.

While the lead characters(one young boy who plays Ethan Hawke) are traveling the snow mountains, they encounter a pack of wolves. The battle to survive between them ends up one person and one beast got killed. A baby wolf left alone in the cold place, begin to explore outside world alone. Boy and wolf meet for the first time in the river, their friendship starts growing in the experiences they go through.

The real star in this movie is absolutely a wolf. This brave, dangerous but irresistible creature totally got me through the movie.
