Goofs

When Keda falls during the hunt, he hits two ledges on the way down (and tries to grab a third, smaller ridge) before landing on the ledge below. But a few seconds later, when the camera travels from the tribe above to the unconscious Keda below, no other ledges protrude between the top and the ledge on which he is lying. See more »

WHY SO MUCH HATE?
26 September 2018 | by xio_lynSee all my reviews

I simply do not understand the bad reviews on this movie. I feel like I saw a totally different movie. I fell in love with it from the beginning. Slow but incredibly touching with such a deep perspective to life and loyalty. The end was unpredictable and left me with a great state of mind. I would recommend this movie to everybody!
