Quotes

Norman Winther: My happiness has a lot to do with how I relate to the land around me. I don't just admire it, I'm a part of it. People should have never lost contact with nature. We need to share with the environment. If human kind is to survive, we have to start living with nature not against it.

Great Photography, Flat Storyline
20 February 2012 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

I didn't know how to rate this film since the photography, landscapes, animals etc... were fabulous. However, the storyline was a pretty flat. The premise that trappers are needed to keep nature in balance is absurd. Nature does that all by itself without human intervention. It also bugged me that the trapper kept getting his dogs in deadly situations. I wondered how many sled dogs were actually injured in the making of this film.

I really liked the trapper's native wife and wish she had a bigger role in the film. She was a very interesting character, but she basically just step and fetched for the trapper all day long. The trapper had a gorgeous canoe, and great dogs too.

The film is basically about a bunch of old guys who don't want to leave the wilderness. However, judging by all the trouble they get into, I think it is high time they move to a retirement community with safe activities overlooking the mountains!
