The "First Documentary" ever!
Despite that reputation the truth is, it is neither the first, nor a real documentary. The action is sometimes staged, such as the scene when the Inuits hide their rifles off camera and fight a huge walrus with spears and ropes instead. This doesn't take away from the educational value of this "documentary" though. After all, who would better reproduce ancient Inuit hunting techniques than someone as intelligent, brave and charismatic as the film's star, Nanook?Was this review helpful?
