Product Description


Carroll Ballard's 1983 adaptation of Farley Mowat's autobiographical novel turns his life-changing experience studying the wolves in Canada's inhospitable North into a moving drama of one man's courage and discovery of nature's majesty. Charles Martin Smith plays green biologist Tyler, sent by the Canadian government to "prove" that the wolves are depleting the caribou herds, but what he finds is a natural world in perfect harmony where he becomes a tolerated outsider. Dumped unprepared in the wilds by a hard drinking bush pilot (Brian Dennehy), Tyler learns survival skills from the aged Eskimo who saves his life and the rules of coexistence from a neighboring wolf (which results in a literal pissing contest as man and beast mark their respective territories). Tyler's journey culminates in the majestic run with the wolf pack, an exhilarating sequence where for an instant he becomes one with natural environment of the wilds. For all its beauty, however, Tyler's experience becomes a bittersweet lesson as the encroachment of hunters, tourism, and the social landscape threaten the natural order. As in his previous film, the delicate and lovely The Black Stallion, Ballard's astounding visual treatment captures the awesome natural beauty of the Canadian wilderness with power and poignancy. Kevin Costner's Oscar-winning Dances with Wolves explores many of the themes presented in this film, but without the resonance or beauty of Ballard's unsung masterpiece. --Sean Axmaker

Product Description

Ironically, the main character in this Disney film eats mice in order to survive.

Un chercheur missionné par le gouvernement pour évaluer la "menace" que représentent les loups, va apprendre que la "menace" n'est pas réelle... Le biologiste Tyler s'est donc vu confier une mission difficile : étudier un été durant la vie d'une tribu de loups dans leur milieu naturel, l'Alaska...

5.0 out of 5 stars A great movie, Naturally Sept. 19 2004
By Ryan
I'm writing this review for two reasons. The first being that this is one my favorite films of all time. The second being that I find that some of the negative comments to be disturbing, particularly the ones that mention the nudity in this film.
I saw this film in the theatre with my parents when I was 8 years old. Even at that age this movie left me breathless in all the good ways. It was beautiful, funny, touching and inspiring. It treated the subject of nature and conservation in way that I hadn't seen before and rarely since. The haunting silence of this film is mezmerizing and the dialogue is spare but wonderfully written. It is a masterpiece.
In regard to the negative comments refeencing the nudity in this film: Every person (including children) has genitals. We see them when we shower, when we use the washroom, when we change out clothes, etc. Why is it that to some people seing a person's genitals (in a non-sexual way) in a film is considered worse that violence? The scenes in this film that portray nudity do not do so in a sexual way. In fact when Tyler (the main character) is shown in the nude it only helps to re-enforce the plot and the feeling that this scientist is in essence trying to let go of his humization for a time, to be wild, like the wolves and caribou in a place so far from human habitation. Even as a child I understood and appreciated this. Parents who try to protect their children from this kind of learning are doing misguidedly in my opinion. This is an enriching film for all ages regarless of the brief nudity and perhaps to some small extent, because of it.
Compared to other films that children could be watching (including many animated films from Disney and others, this movie has a lot to offer.

4.0 out of 5 stars "BugSmasher" Dec 2 2013
Format:VHS Tape
Upon doing a review on Charles Martin Smith's movie "Snow Walker" I thought it only fitting to throw in my 2 cents on Mr.Smiths movie "Never Cry Wolf". I've owned this movie for many years. I watch it over at least twice per year or more just for the simple fact the movie with it's music & scenery takes me back to the tranquillity but also the ruggedness of the North that can be very unforgiving proving in some cases fatal. I well remember the cold night us & other pilots gathered round the "Boob Tube" (as Rosey mentioned) as we all watched Rosey's attempts at take/off grossly over-loaded as the script carried on. We, laughed, we roared, even switching the tape player to "Pause" to examine the racer duct-taped cockpit interior of "Little Air's" Beaver. Of course along with the home-made shaking pilot-side rear wooden cargo door & numerous things like a pair of vise-grips substituting for a genuine control lever or etc, etc. Brian Dennehy played a role of believe or not at least a few of the pilots we had all met. It's not all "Spit & Polish" in the North as time in the air is money & "Bush Drivers" can get pretty dirty over the day. It's not pressed uniforms & clean finger nails hauling moose quarters or mining equip. etc, etc. Obviously Brian was coached as you watch different movements of controls such as pumping in flap on the move during take off roll (Well now...??), reaching to the ceiling for trim control of course. Even looking down at the tach & manifold gauge as the engine is milling to a stop with the low fuel pressure light flashing & warning buzzer beeping. Note how he fiddles with the power controls even reaching down pumping the wobble pump in hopes of raising the fuel pressure to catch the dieing engine. Read more ›

A great show with a great story. Great for watching with the whole family. Definitely worth the money. Wish it was made on blu-ray though.

5.0 out of 5 stars How did I miss this when it was released? Dec 18 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a no-frills DVD. I would have liked some extra features such as a making of feature, a commentary and so on. As well the film looks like it's been transferred from less than pristine elements. Nevertheless I very much enjoyed this movie. I think it would be excellent entertainment for children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, beautiful wilderness adventure Sept. 23 2011
By K. Gordon TOP 50 REVIEWER
Visually stunning, sweet, understated tale of under-prepared young scientist
sent to the Artic region to observe wolves.

With very little dialogue, just some gentle voice over, we trace his path with humor,
tension, and sadness.

Even the ending is surprisingly quiet and gentle for a Hollywood film.

A beautiful, honest portrait of the true complexities of adventuring beyond
our limits.

Frustratingly, the DVD was made from a very flawed print; lots of dirt and print
damage (very visible against all the white snow and ice). But the film
is so strong that its still well worth seeing and owning.

I just wish they'd come out with a remastered DVD and blu-ray.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never Cry Wolf June 30 2010
As a pilot, I thoughly enjoyed the scenes with the de Havilland Beaver and the Bush Pilot played by Brian Dennehy. The film is rated 'G' and is suitable for family viewing. The cinematography is exceptional (in the Walt Disney fashion). The component of the Biologist played Charles Martin Smith was a great thread to keep the story line going. Great value for the money. A good rainy day film to watch.
