Anyway I have a old pal (he's younger than me) who lives in Poland and he and his wife often go to the cinema. He told me that he went to see a brilliant film about the indigenous people living in the Siberian Taiga. He said:
"You'll love it Dave."
So I looked it up on You Tube and I saw the following film trailer:
The film ('"filum" if you live in Ireland!) impressed me very much, and I ordered a copy for 13 quid on Ebay. The film is absolutely mesmerising and awe inspiring. And (never start a sentence with and) there are none of those subtitles like they used to have in those naughty French films that you never used to watch and not bother to read, did you?
My rural isolation is nothing compared to these men who spend months on their own with no phone, running water or medical supplies or aid. In one scene one of the hunters journeys through the snow and ice to get to one of his log cabin hunting lodges. On arrival he finds a tree that's fell down and blocking his door and its getting dark. So he gets out the chainsaw (like you do), cuts down the tree and fixes his window, then he lights the fire and makes his supper. The man didn't bat an eyelid and seemed very 'happy'. I go mad when the computer is being daft, or I have no Sky television or electricity and the well pump is not working. These Siberian hunters are made of stronger stuff.
The soundtrack music is also amazing and the director Werner Herzog should get an Oscar for his film. Honestly it's incredible. Man is such an incredible creature and nature should be revered. What a film! What a man's got to do to get away from the wife and kids. Not everybody wants to watch Siberian East Enders and Siberian Coronation Street, do they?
