I never thought I'd sit through the whole of this film which looked like an amateur project from the start. But I found it hilarious. I couldn't stop laughing. I'm pretty sure it wasn't intended as a parody, but that's how it turned out, at least for me.

OK, the animals and the nature were attractive enough, but it had only the barest hint of a plot and very little acting, particularly by the adult "actors". The film makes me wonder what the point was in making it at all. Viewed as a project for film-making school it would be acceptable perhaps, but for worldwide publication???? I can understand that it will entertain small children, all that running around with a cuddly wolf pup in your arms and everything...

It makes a very, very, very obvious statement, in favour of the carnivores and against the crooked sheep raisers that want to shoot them - there has been a lot of debate and conflict around this theme in Norway in later years. But to me, a supporter of the carnivore conservation cause, it was wholly embarrassing. Almost every scene lacks any hint of credibility and nothing much was stated other than the most blatantly obvious. I guess you cannot expect too much debate from a children's film, and children of course aren't so much in need of a credible plot, good acting and subtlety as older people. But I have seen children's films with those elements in them, so why not? It is possible. Try again.
