When the North Wind Blows (1974)

Sunn Classic Pictures
Directed by Stewart Raffill
My rating: 2 stars out of 4

An exceptionally cold winter in Russia has driven tigers from the mountains into a local village. A hunting party is arranged, leading to the accidental death of one of the villagers. A local trapper is accused of murder and flees into the wilderness. A posse follows but is unable to find him. The trapper adapts to life in the remote back country by befriending the tigers and other animals. Years later men from the village find him and threaten his idyllic existence. Entertaining little yarn filmed on location in Canada. However, the acting is inconsistent, and the whole tiger thing a bit of a stretch.
