Jack London's classic story from 1903 about Buck, a dog kidnapped from his home in California and taken to the Yukon where he is mistreated until a prospector discovers him and relates to his situation. Although the two are bonded, Buck yearns to run free with the wild dogs in the wilderness.Written by

[referring to Buck, the Yukon Dog]
And he knew that John Thornton was dead. It left a great void in him somewhat akin to hunger, but a void that ached and ached...and which food could not fill.

It is a pity that we have yet to see good movies doing justice to Jack London's "Call of the Wild" and "The Sea Wolf" novels. This movie is the best I have seen for the former. The background music is great, scenery is spectacular, acting is good, and Jack London's great story is well narrated. The novel remains the best dog story ever told (I don't have any pets), but this movie should appeal to all who love outdoors. Besides, there is plenty of depth in this movie, dealing with nature and nurture, survival of the fittest etc. I give it 9 out of 10.
