Like many of the white in the area, he does not associate with the Inuit except for what he can get out of them in bartering. On a personal plane trip, he runs across a small family of nomadic Inuit. The female of the group, named Kanaalaq, has what Charlie suspects is tuberculosis. In exchange for some ivory, Charlie agrees to fly her to a hospital in Yellowknife. En route back to the city, Charlie is forced to make a crash landing when the plane develops mechanical problems. Although both Charlie and Kanaalaq are unharmed by the crash, the plane is totaled, they are in the middle of nowhere, the radio doesn’t seem to be working, they have a meager amount of supplies, and Charlie’s whereabouts are probably unknown to others since he made a detour from his original route. Furthermore, they can’t communicate with each other as Kanaalaq only knows a few words of English, whereas Charlie knows no Inuktituk. According to his map, Charlie estimates it is one hundred miles to the closest town and decides to walk. He soon learns that he is not well equipped for outdoor life in the north, at least not as well equipped as Kanaalaq, who is in her element. He figures that things can only get worse for both him dealing with the elements and Kanaalaq suffering from her illness as the winter snows approach.

A nice surprise
I hired ‘Wimbledon’ but upon opening the case there was the wrong disc. Instead it was this film called ‘The Snow Walker’. Had full intentions of taking it straight back to the video store but it was late at night and figured I’d just put it on while I did something else.
I found myself fully engrossed in this film. It was such a nice simple story that’s been wonderfully acted. Some of the scenery was nice and what was there was very well shot. Good use of what was available. The music really fit the film well.
Sometimes the films that we have no intention of watching turn out to be nice little surprises.
Long time fan of Farley Mowat
Having stumbled upon this film last week, I found I had to stay up very late to finish it! At the end of the film , I realized it was based on a Farley Mowat book – it was then I realized why this excellent screen adaptation had captured my imagination. Mowat’s books about the great Northern Territory and peoples adventures/ growth are legend. This movie is another example of his fine writing being put to film. The performances by The pilot (Pepper) and the young Inuit girl are very believable. Their trust and friendship grow slowly due mostly to the immaturity of the pilot.
Also, check out some other of Mowats books and films, including Gray Seas Under, A Whale for the Killing, Lost in the Barrens to name a few. He is a wonderful writer and this is an excellent adaptation of his book.
