A young Estonian goes to the Siberian Taiga to live as a hunter in a remote forest hut. He hopes to find his true self far from civilisation. The natives he meets introduce him to the myths of the north. The first is a young village teacher who wants to be a good wife to him. The second is a wild and untameable native who becomes his mythical bear-woman. When he accidentally kills a great black bear, his own shadow-creature, he burdens himself with guilt. However, he is given a chance of finding his inner balance. A romantic drama with mythical elements and breathtaking landscapes.

Blais E (au) wrote: The marvelously-versatile Ernest Borgnine really pulls out all the stops as a kind-hearted, very set-in-his-ways church-going farmer who turns the tables on 3 vicious, on-the-run bank robbers (Snub-nosed mumbler Michael J Pollard & gravelly-voiced Canadian actor Cec Linder are the 2 most memorable-) after they invade his peaceful existence with his granddaughter, in increasingly violent fashion. A deep statement about how easy it is for virtually anyone to revert to man's basically primal nature, this is a sadly little-known film with superb acting jobs, with the always-excellent Borgnine giving a multi-shaded performance.
Robert C (gb) wrote: Lauren Bacall's character is so stuck up and unlikable it's impossible to believe that any of the men in the movie would ever fall in love with her, but besides that the film is a lot of lighthearted fun.
Andrew S (au) wrote: Fantastic comedy from a team who really should have made more films together. Decades ahead of its time. "Mrs Jooooones!"
Francois D (gb) wrote: Incredible and amazing! Anyone interested and loves films should watch this. A must-see. Dune must be made Jodorowsky's way.
Kevin M (jp) wrote: One of the best interpretations of Sherlock Holmes, and certainly the best Sherlock Holmes movie made so far. Fun, smart, intelligent and the performances are all great (especially RDJ as Sherlock, who is SO good in this role, and Jared Harris as Moriarty, who both are dynamite when together) and it stayed true to the source material while also giving it a new style and adding new things to do. The mystery was well done, the relationships between the characters were good and it feels much like smart Sherlock Holmes rather than dumbing it down for Fast and the Furious action fans. I love it!
Bradley D (es) wrote: A pleasant surprise! Strong performances all around, and a tragic love story that explores broad issues of faith and morality.
