This is a marvelous film, that leaves out all the parts that are unnecessary, and includes the real life bits and pieces that add up to a wonderful story. It highlights the value of generosity, and creativity, while also unflinchingly telling the story of a hard life on the frontier. The intensity of hunger in the world, and the value of food are beautifully exhibited.
