Ballard and his masterly crew of film makers have reimagined a corner of the natural world...They leave us awed.

Measures up to the promise Ballard amply provided in his first feature, The Black Stallion.

For the most part very absorbing, the film suffers from some embarrassingly obvious symbolism.

Perhaps the best thing about the film is that the wolves are never made to seem like strange but cuddly dogs. They look like wolves, not especially threatening but still remote and complete unto themselves.

The film is still memorable for its compassion, commitment, and unexpected humor, qualities that go a long way toward tempering the ecological didacticism of the screenplay.
