largely a waiste of time
17 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not sure how this has rated 6.3 rating at the time I looked at it. It has no story, no dialogue and no purpose. Really can't say too much about the film because not much happens in the film. Reading the description tells you more about the film than actually watching it. This is just a story about people that are too hard headed to move when the environment is forcing them to. People and animals have to adapt to a changing landscape and environment. Always have, always will. Not sure why someone thought this was worth making a movie about. I think there are about 6 people in the film and probably not more than 50 words spoken, most of them are difficult to understand due to the heavy accent. Most action packed part of the movie is when a man chops down a tree. I rated the movie a 5 which is mostly because the landscape of the frozen tundra is kinda nice and they did a nice job with the camera usage.
