This is the second film directed by the great Carroll Ballard. Like his first film, "The Black Stallion" (1979), it also deals with themes of isolation and human/animal relationships. Utilizing stunning cinematography and music, this is a grand adventure in the far north. Based on Farley Mowat's semi-autobiography of the same name, it tells about a man sent to uncover the reason behind the decline of caribou herds.
This is my favorite film of all time.
