The young Norwegian girl Kim almost gets killed after falling from a hillside. She finds shelter and stumbles upon the territory of a wolf and her puppy. She barricades herself, but as time passes she finds the wolf less and less frightening. When she finds out three shepherds are out to kill the wolf, she decides to get across the border to Sweden, where they don't hunt for wolves. Written by

I never thought I'd sit through the whole of this film which looked like an amateur project from the start. But I found it hilarious. I couldn't stop laughing. I'm pretty sure it wasn't intended as a parody, but that's how it turned out, at least for me.
OK, the animals and the nature were attractive enough, but it had only the barest hint of a plot and very little acting, particularly by the adult "actors". The film makes me wonder what the point was in making it at all. Viewed as a project for film-making school it would be acceptable perhaps, but for worldwide publication???? I can understand that it will entertain small children, all that running around with a cuddly wolf pup in your arms and everything...
It makes a very, very, very obvious statement, in favour of the carnivores and against the crooked sheep raisers that want to shoot them - there has been a lot of debate and conflict around this theme in Norway in later years. But to me, a supporter of the carnivore conservation cause, it was wholly embarrassing. Almost every scene lacks any hint of credibility and nothing much was stated other than the most blatantly obvious. I guess you cannot expect too much debate from a children's film, and children of course aren't so much in need of a credible plot, good acting and subtlety as older people. But I have seen children's films with those elements in them, so why not? It is possible. Try again.
