Unusual project for Kurosawa, who went to Russia due to lack of work in his native country. The film is beautifully shot, especially the eerie Siberian landscapes, but the plot – concerning the meeting between a 'civilised' Russian military captain and a 'primitive' Oriental trapper – smacks of simplistic Mosfilm party line.
