Anneke von der Lippe,
Japanese AND Russian?! This is bound to be tragedy on a large scale! But incredibly it does have a happy ending - I must have used up a week's worth of adrenalin getting there! The suspense (for such a slow movie - Japanese/Russian remember?) was excruciating. This is NOT a movie for animal rightists - it's largely about fur traders, dog-sleds and wolves in Siberia. And it's probably not a movie for Americans either. It's a very Japanese Russian film. Or is it a very Russian Japanese film? I'm not sure, but daughter number three wants to watch it again and I think I'll join her. I've been in Japan too long.
