I lately bought the DVD - the landscape is astoundingly filmed, the music is a little similar to the movie of JEREMIAH JOHNSON (the first lines of the music sound like stolen) but the behavior of Norman is sure sometimes very strange and "more than a little stupid" as to say for someone who spent a lifetime in the wild of Yukon: sledging over a lake that just has been frozen (!), pushing his sled up a steep hill..., sledging a crevice in deep snow..., trying to shoot an elk and not hitting it..., building a nest that Nebaska is trying to climb up and brakes down.... and most disturbing not listening to his fine subtle Nebaska Mary Loo....Anyway - Vanier has done a good job: he shows a periled area in the North which is vanishing not only by the loggers as well of climate change!
