Undiscovered Classic
26 November 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A friend who had seen this obscure film recommended it and when it was on late one night I taped it and what a classic it is! It was on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation,the Federal Government free to air channel which plays great old black and white movies.

Similar to 49th Parallel in its depiction of people in conflict in a strong natural environment which is as beautiful as it is unforgiving.Should be more widely known for its great music,scenery and acting.

It's right up with Michael Powell's classics of the same time,release it on DVD now !!!
