Awesome. Beautifully done. IF one is willing to open one's mind to a different way of making a movie, and if one is willing to look, listen, feel, & think as one watches.
Taking into account the physical environment, the weather, risks and history (as to inter-relationships, Inuk vs. white, day-to-day practical matters and with regard to religious beliefs), the finished product (post edit) represents an extraordinarily valuable contribution to the record of evolving societies, a contribution unlikely to appeal to inward-looking urbanites and Tom Cruise fans.
A brilliant piece of filmmaking but those with short attention spans or not much upstairs should stay away.
Very disappointing after Atanarjuat. Just another attempt at creating something profound resulting in a dull movie.
Visually very rich but i wish there were more historical accounts made of the traditional beliefs, customs, and taboos. I think the movie cuts way too short when we only see the quite terse contrast between the two worlds. i also don`t want to give a bad impression of the Christian world coming in. It is a noted fact that people who converted into Christianity were people were already part of a law system, not barbaric or aesists which was very obviously that the Inuit had a rich value system of rights and wrongs but the way Christianity is seen is particularly bad. We shouldn`t forget that the Inuit religiousity were, in principle, the r
Not for everyone but an interesting film.
It’s a good portrayal of Inuit life and the influences that the white man had on them, but if that’s not your interest, go see something else.
rental at most
pretty bad. other better movies to spend money on.
