Never Cry Wolf


1983; 105 min.

Based on a true story, this film relates the adventures of a naturalist who travels to the Arctic to study wolves by living with them. A tenderfoot in terms of wilderness life, he almost dies before he is rescued by an Eskimo. Thereafter he gradually bonds with a wolf pack. His crisis comes when the pack is threatened by a band of hunters. This is one of the most beautiful nature films ever made. There are no children in this movie, but children will identify with the hero because he has a childlike sense of wonder, curiosity, and willingness to try almost anything (like dining on mice, to find out why wolves eat them).
