Movie Reviews

Exquisite Visual Account of the Bond between Wolf & Man!
A. J. Rutten | Minnesota USA | 12/26/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Filmmakers Jim & Jamie Dutcher embark on a 6-year journey which takes them from the Sawtooth Mountains of Idaho to the native lands of the Nez Perce tribe as they raise and bond with a pack of gray wolves they raise from puppies. The Dutchers must take care not to make pets of these magical creatures, but instead to integrate them into the social hierarchy of the adult Sawtooth pack. Any ideas harbored about wolves being vicious beasts will be dispelled as you view astonishing, illuminating images of these mystical animals playing, and caring for both their pack mates and the Dutchers! Narrated by Richard Kiley, the 50 minute film produced for the Discovery Channel is heart-warming, compelling, educational, and remarkable in its ability to both affect emotions and help the viewer truly understand how these incredible animals have been misunderstood and maligned at the hands of man, and why wolves must be saved as they are an absolutely necessary piece of our ecological tapestry! The vision of Jim Dutcher sitting in the snow-laden wilderness as the alpha-male, Kamots, puts his paw respectfully into Jim's hand will take your breath away! Unparalled cinematography and beautiful music! A film to be watched again and again!"
This is the alpha of wolf documentaries!
Kama Cunningham | St. Louis, Missouri | 11/27/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is absolutely the best documentary on wolf behavior I have ever seen. The footage is amazing--I can't believe they were able to capture these beautiful creatures in such an open, natural state. This particular film maker defies tradition and exposes young wolf pups to human care in the wild--they grow up believing the camp is a part of their surroundings, and as a result they act very naturally. The human involvement makes for some touching scenes, such as the baby alpha howling on his lap or the full-grown alpha licking his face in the snow. The film is also well structured, covering the care of the pups to their release from camp, their mating choices, the birth of new cubs and competition for social position. It is truly a beautiful and very enlightening film."
I didn't realize wolves were so friendly

"When I saw this DVD I thought the wolves were going to be locked up into small cages. But what I saw totally gave me a new reality about wolves. Of course I have seen wolf documentaries before; and have also seen them tamed. But I did not realize they would show affection and loyalty the way this film did. Definitely a must-see!"

"A great film, that warms the heart and shows first hand how a wolf pack functions. Of the 5 or so wolf films I have watched this is the best. Dog owners can understand abit more about their domestic pets."
