The Call of the Wild – Dog of the Yukon / 1997

10 Mar


The Call of the Wild – Dog of the Yukon Soundtrack / 1997

“He was mastered by the sheer surging of life, the tidal wave of being, the perfect joy of each separate muscle, joint, and sinew in that it was everything that was not death, that it was aglow and rampant,
expressing itself in movement, flying exultantly under the stars.”

― Jack London, The Call of the Wild

Locations: Quebec (exterior) and Montreal, Quebec.

Reviews: generally favorable.
MFW: For me this film is the best of The Call of the Wild films.
The narration by Richard Dreyfuss makes the difference.
Taken from the book it lets us see and experience the story through Buck’s eyes.
The way it’s supposed to be.
Nicely done.

I’ve seen things that you people wouldn’t believe. 

How important is this movie to many people?
and Rutger Hauer’s role in it?

It still has a huge following.

“Quite an experience to live in fear, isn’t it? That’s what it is to be a slave.”

“Fiery the angels fell. Deep thunder rolled round their shores. Burning with the fires of Orc.”

“I want more life, father.”

“It’s not an easy thing to meet your maker.”

“Can the maker repair what he makes?”

“If only you could see what I’ve seen with your eyes!”

“I want more life, father.”
