When did Norway become America?
9 March 2003 | by jippy33See all my reviews

This looks like the Norwegian version of a wolfy Lassie. And it all the cliches that could make it a predictable American movie. But it is not...and perhaps that is what makes it a better one.

And Braaten makes a great debut here as Kim, the little girl who does what she can to save the wolf and it's puppy from three angry shepards. A true adventure it is...but perhaps in a smaller scale than you might would expect.
