This is one of those crass white people meet stoic native people things. Like "cannibal Holocaust" though it isn't quite "Eskimo Holocaust". It's basically a national geographic special with a plot. If you think it would be cool to hang out with some eskimos definately rent this because it IS cool. two noteable scenes are a eskimo woman warming Warren Oates' feet with her boobs and laughing and two eskimo ladies doing a sort of lesbionic throat saxophone thing together (I won't try to explain it). So it's educational but there is some sex and violence to get you through it.
