Thriller set in the desolate Arctic tundra, based on a short story by Sara Maitland. Saiva (Michelle Yeoh) is a woman who has lived her life under a curse put upon her at birth. She and Anja (Michelle Krusiec), her beautiful adopted daughter, are the sole survivors of an indigenous tribe of reindeer herders slaughtered by a troop of marauding soldiers, and they struggle to survive on the scarce prey they can kill. When Saiva finds an injured and starving soldier, Loki (Sean Bean), who is also on the run from the marauding band, she takes him in and the two women nurse him back to health as the long winter nights draw in. But when Loki and Anja grow close and start to fall in love, devastating consequences lie in store for all three.

The plot sees the delicate balance in the lives of two women surviving in a glacial landscape disturbed when they discover the half-dead body of a soldier and subsequently nurse him back to health. The women seem to be in hiding from an oppressive military force in an unspecified polar territory, but little is made explicit. What is strange about the film is that the two central characters, played by Michelle Yeoh and Michelle Krusiec, are of Far Eastern appearance (they are of Malaysian and Chinese descent, respectively) while the man who interrupts their harmonious existence is an Englishman (Sean Bean), and the baddies seem to be notionally Russian. However, the little dialogue that does take place is in English and no-one seems quite sure what accent to speak.Read more ›
The film is o.k. but methinks someone has perhaps watched Kaneto Shindo's film from 1964 called ONIBABA and thought,now there's a good idea for a film!
If anyone thinks Far North is half decent,try ONIBABA,it's similar but different,and much better,and you'll be impressed.(Even though it is in black and white and 46 years old.)
