Ford western The Searchers, in which a vengeful husband sets off in pursuit of the men who kidnapped his wife. While Kunuk and his collaborator Natar Ungalaaq (The Journals of Knud Rassmussen, Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner) hew closely to the basic scenario of the Ford original— wherein a white girl is abducted by members of the Comanche nation, sparking a seven-year search by her obsessed uncle —they have made a film that is very different in tone and feel.
