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 »

Fairly interesting, if flawed
13 June 2011 | by See all my reviews

A fairly interesting, if flawed, movie. Toshiro Mifune was great, and could pass for an Eskimo. Lou Diamond Phillips is awfully tall and lean, though. And Jennifer Tilly, well she is beautiful, and she acted very well, but just does not even come close to seeming Eskimo. In a way this is the old story of Europeans interacting with indigenous peoples. As one character out it, "You need us! you no longer can survive without our rifles and our metal knives!" And the chieftain admits "we will die" Should we have left these people in their Stone Age condition? I don't think so. But it did mean the end of their ways of life. The Innuit only escaped the reservation system due to the remoteness of their homelands.But back to the movie, it is worth checking out if only for the photography.
