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.

a great documentary
22 December 2004 | by (Brussels, Belgium) – See all my reviews

I have been invited to the "premiere" of Le Dernier Trappeur in Brussels, Belgium, as I happen to know the executive producer of this movie ... Director Nicolas Vanier has been interviewed in front of the room, mainly explaining the problems they had with the cold temperature there, they had to shoot with -50°C sometimes (*EDIT* : -58°F, sorry for bad conversion)! I tried to view the movie as objectively as possible, and honestly I haven't been disappointed.

This movie is a documentary, you have to know that. People in there "act", but terribly as they are *not* actors. Norman Winther -Northman Winter would have been more appropriate ;)- is a trapper, in the deep Yukon in Canada, and you as a spectator learn to know his tough life.

Wonderful landscapes, incredible views of that part of our earth I didn't know could be so beautiful, are in themselves entirely making the movie worthy. There is a message too : "in those northern lands, what man does, hunting, is a necessity : he takes samples, but doesn't ruin the nature. Without him, some species will swarm, other will disappear". I suppose it isn't 100% true, but hey the movie is supported by the WWF so I guess even if they try to justify the hunting, this cannot be so bad :)

One negative point though : you'll have some repetition, in the succession of scenes as well as in music, even if that one is very nice.

A great documentary, two thumbs up !
