The film features Russians from other parts who have gone to live in Siberia
on 20 October 2013
The film is certainly a beautifully-photographed documentary, but I wanted to know more about the indigenous folk who had lived in this part of Siberia for centuries. I had hoped to see more of their traditional way of life. In this film they are barely glimpsed and they seem to have fallen very low, drunk and impoverished and confused about whether this is their fault. The Russians who have managed to make a modest living in their lands were of much less interest to me. These are the "Happy" people. The few tribes folk we met were pretty miserable.
