Flaherty's sense of poetic grandeur never lets up.
The sea is the villain and the quest for food the plot of this peasants-among-peasants picture, which rates high artistically.
Robert Flaherty, the mellow wanderer with a camera, has made a memorable film out of the tragic and beautiful fundamentals of human behavior.
The photography is brilliant, the best of any of Flaherty's work.
There are moments in the film which are among the greatest things that cinema can show, which means at the least that they provide both a mental and a physical experience which is unforgettable.
This film deserves appreciation and support more for its intention than for its achievement.
Sadly, this trenchant tribute to heroic fortitude will always be remembered more for its artifice than its artistry.
A classic 1934 documentary from Robert Flaherty, pioneering forefather of the genre (see 1922's Nanook Of The North).
The film is a canny blend of observation and creation.
This will not be for everyone but there are a number of beautiful shots.
