Editorial Reviews

Sixty years before "Dances With Wolves" there was "The Silent Enemy," an exciting and magical reconstruction of Ojibway Indian life in the time before the white man settled the Hudson Bay region. The "enemy" is hunger, which threatens the tribe as it desperately tracks and hunts the caribou herds. The thunderous caribou stampede provides an absolutely thrilling finale. Magnificently filmed on location, "The Silent Enemy" was acclaimed by the critics as a masterpiece on its original release and it remains so today.

Format: DVD
... if you are interested in the history of American Indians, or simply in the story of a people with ancestral traditions struggling to survive the harshness of Nature. This film involves actual Indian actors who were then still living a traditional lifestyle. The introduction by the Indian chief at the beginning is powerful, as he thanks the magic of the camera for preserving forever the story the viewers are about to see, the story of a world that is about to disappear, as he says. I never purchased the DVD because I expected it to have a decent packaging and extras, and maybe a remastering, and I already have The Silent Enemy on Laserdisc. But if you have never seen it, you should purchase the DVD. I will be waiting for a new edition myself. I give it 5 stars, though, because this film cannot be done in the same conditions ever again. It is too late...

As a white person, I am abhorred that this important DVD is so insanely priced, no doubt by my grubby white brethren. Now NO ONE can see this version because of their greed. Makin' me proud and well done!

The seller must have got a card with some white dust. $799.00 for a dvd is so far out in left field it,s bordering on ridiculous.
