Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Adapted from an autobiographical novel by Farley Mowat, Never Cry Wolf was director Carroll Ballard's worthy follow-up to his superb and much-loved The Black Stallion. Both pictures (as well as his later Fly Away Home) feature animals in central roles, as the communion between the human and animal worlds is a significant aspect of Ballard's films. Wolf's protagonist, wonderfully played by the reliable character actor Charles Martin Smith, learns more about himself as he enters the flow of his rugged surroundings and the family of wolves that he observes. It sounds romantic, but Ballard never sidesteps the ugliness of nature or the discomfort of loneliness. The result is a quirky, deceptively simple meditation on life. Shot on location in Alaska and the Yukon Territory, the film is as striking as Ballard's Black Stallion. Hiro Narita's clear, rich cinematography is marvelous, and the film's evocative, realistic sound was nominated for an Academy Award.

    Never Cry Wolf

    This is a timeless classic that the whole family can enjoy. I first saw this years ago when it first came out and now that I have children of my own who love animals I had to show it to them. There is plenty of comedy yet the message of responsibility to the environment really comes accross.
    Don't miss this movie!

    One of my all time favorites.

    I rarely see a film more than once and I rarely buy a movie. I bought this one after seeing it five times. It has humor, drama, adventure, beautiful photography and great sound...plus a message.

    a family classic

    I saw this film when it was origianlly released in theatres. It is beautifully shot with a grittyness that allows you to show the simplistic beauty of the subject matter. The main character's trials and tribulations are fascinating and entertaining and it explores a part of the world rarely seen in modern films. I recommend it for all families who have a nature lover within their midst. The book is also a modern classic
