Audience Reviews for Ofelas (Pathfinder)
I love it when a film takes us someplace we've never been. With 'Pathfinder' the snowcoverd mountains of Norway provided the setting for a great big action-adventure story.
BORING! Had to watch this in Norwegian class... Grammar tasks would've been way more pleasant. Then again, I hate movies where I don't understand the spoken language, so it's not suprising that I didn't like it.
This is the first Lapp film that I've seen. It was quite an experience. It is definitely NOT a family film. It scared an 8 year old out of his mind and sent 2 teenaged girls out of the room in tears. Yes, it is a fierce story that has a lot of graphic cruelty. But the film also had the power to pull me so far into the story that I was wondering how the hero will pull it off, forgetting that it was a film. Now that's an achievement considering the film's provenance. The photography was excellent, the acting was somewhat unusual to me. But it did convey, effectively, a whole cultural outlook. The enemy Tchudes were vicious plunderers that took everything, even the lives, of a peaceful and generous people. How to fight this well armed group of psychopaths seemed to be impossible. But inventiveness and good does win out. The romantic ending was boffo because the hero really gets the girl. A mutli-region DVD player is a must for any film buff who wishes to explore this wide world of international cinema.
