Regardless of whether the practice of living with wolves is to be applauded or canned, the footage, the behaviours and the insight gained into pack behaviour and the intricacies of the wolf pack is amazing viewing.
The film makers, by being able to be so close to the wolves, have offered an insight hitherto unseen. Other documentaries around wolves have limited vision of the animals, shot from a distance. This is as up close and personal as it gets. You can't help but to feel for some of the animals as they assume their roles in the pack, but by the same token, you are drawn to other animals by their personality, and the way they behave.
Just a fascinating insight into a misunderstood species, and highly recommended.
