Wonderful documentary/movie for the family
28 February 2019 | by mawiravenSee all my reviews

Plot: The first year of Ailo is shown, a reindeer that is learning its place in the world. While experiencing the harsh weather and life conditions in lapland, i.e. northern scandinavia, Ailo also meets the other animals living there, like squirrels, foxes, wolverines etc. and, of course, other reindeer.

This movie is more like a documentary as it is very informative to the viewer about the flora and fauna. Cute animals and beautiful scenic views of landscapes are concomittantly paired with finnish orchestral music, and both add to a very special cinema experience.
