The Savage Innocents

Nicholas Ray Großbritannien, 1960

dionysus67's rating of the film Im Land der langen Schatten

A curiosity really, this tacky, ethnocentric adventure intrigues with its impact on the viewer once one starts expecting more than mere Arctic scenery. Quinn's almost parodic character gradually plunges us into the terra incognita of a savage innocent and despite the exoticism the film is imposing and captivating. The 'educators' are eventually educated but the film's dubious politics should not prevent viewing it.
