When Kroomak and Henderson meet, Henderson's pipe is in his mouth when Kroomak says, "You'll stay with me. I want nothing to happen to you." In the subsequent shot, Henderson's pipe is suddenly gone. Then we return to the two-shot and the pipe is suddenly back again - and Henderson is suddenly re-lighting it. See more »

Good, but...
7 August 1999 | by (Cap-de-la-Madeleine, Canada) – See all my reviews

I like this movie because drama of the arctic pole are rare! In this point of view, it's very original. But the settings are so Hollywood! This arctic don't seem to be so cold and Jennifer Tilly don't look like an Inuit woman. But the story is good, even if the movie had few to do with the Yves Theriault book AGAGUK (it's supposed to be the movie of the book). But it's a good piece of work. Lou Diamond Phillips is O.K.
