un tesoro.se te descuelga la mandíbula.pocas oportunidades como esta para ver la vida de auténticos sapiens...y reflexionar en lo que nos hemos convertido
Si obviamos el tono documental de algunos cortos de los cineastas primitivos (recordad muchos films de los Lumiere) el nacimiento de todo un género (aunque fuera bastante trampeado). Imprescindible para entender un poco mejor la H. del Cine.
Un documento excepcional y real
The film is not technically sophisticated; how could it be, with one camera, no lights, freezing cold, and everyone equally at the mercy of nature? But it has an authenticity that prevails over any complaints that some of the sequences were staged. If you stage a walrus hunt, it still involves hunting a walrus, and the walrus hasn't seen the script. What shines through is the humanity and optimism of the Inuit. One of the film's titles describes them as "happy-go-lucky," and although this seems almost cruel, given the harsh terms of their survival, they do indeed seem absorbed by their lives and content in them, which is more than many of us can say.
