This was a very beautifully done documentary film on the lives of the Inuit whose lives are tied to that of the caribou. They, in fact, once lived with the caribou. There is wonderful vintage scene showing a family crossing a stream with several caribou in tow. Told by the son of Nanook (Nanook of the North fame). It is as much about the landscape as it is about the people that have adapted to live in the northern wilderness.

Lovely views

"theis dvd is not bad. the starting sequence of the the film and the bird's eye view of the herd of caribou running was absolutley awesome. but the film feels abit slow and drags on abit about the life of the INuit. great but stick to landscape views. NOt as enthralling as I thought it would be but worth watching nonetheless."

"This IMAX film is a wonderful look into the lives of the dwellers of the GREAT NORTH, both human and animal. The shots of herds of caribou are very impressive and the traditional "breathing" kind of music the inuit women practice is fascinating. Overall an entertaining way to learn about this little-known region."
