The greatness of the great moose herds of Canada, which became the focus of this documentary, and their transformation from the wild into the domesticated moose herds that they are today, would seem to be well-known. But the true greatness of this subject, as well as the true moose story, is revealed in a very, very subtle way. The moose are not just a bovine beast. They are intelligent, musical, and a boon to everyone. The film spends most of the time talking to the moose, and the fact that there is only one moose that moves about the forests is important in showing the struggle and the end-state of a herd that numbers about 8,000 and could easily become a million in a few generations, if left to their own devices. The fact that they are intelligent and that they live to the ripe old age of 50 and that they are not ready to be domesticated is of course important. And the fact that the women, who work with the herds, never want to leave is of course important. But it is the desire for freedom that brings them together. The film has an incredible soundtrack that highlights the story of the moose as a struggle for a nomadic, self-sufficient, and independent life, and the film reminds us of the importance of not only nature, but of those who work to protect and preserve that nature. The film takes us into the animal's head to show us the why and how of a beast that it is. This is a film that should be seen by anyone with an interest in the subject matter, and it makes us realize that the world is not that different than the one we find ourselves in, and that we do not need to be omniscient to recognize that. A fantastic film.

I found myself quite surprised by this movie. It's not exactly a movie for those of us who know all the black history in this country but if you are a racist, this movie will only serve to shock you. The fact that all the negroes were given the same awards and the racial differences weren't drawn out and analyzed in a "you are what you are" way was well and truly disturbing. I'm not saying that this was true, but it is a true story and to see this sort of thing happen to a black family who happened to be "disposable" (as was the case with some of the black families who became ghettos in the early 20th century) was a little too much for me. We were all at a point in our lives where we were either convinced that we were "good" and "worthy" (as some would say) or we were "bad" and "worthless" or a combination of the two. It's a sad thing that things would be this way in this country, and this movie is just as much of a reality check as it is an education. I've always been fascinated with this whole idea of "living with "The" Other" and that's where this movie comes into it. It's a movie that's just simply an education in how to deal with this. It was refreshing to see that the movie made sure that it didn't glorify the white man's culture and heritage at all, and it kept a very low profile while it was on the screen. At the end of the day, this is a movie that is going to speak for itself, and I hope it does. It has a very positive and honest message.
