This is beautiful Canadian film about a bush pilot and an ailing Inuit woman who are marooned together in the Arctic tundra after their plane crashes. It's a very simple survival plot with two terrific actors and the stark beauty of the Canadian Arctic thrown in for good measure. You may be tempted, as I was, to expect a romance film because of the set up but it is not. Still, it is a good film to sit down to with a boyfriend or husband. A great story of a man and a woman learning to love and respect each other on a whole different level from what we are used to. Based on the short story "Walk Well My Brother" by Farley Mowat. (Running time--90 minutes.)
