Lucio Fulci and Franco Nero return to the world of White Fang, for a spectacular adventure that never lets up
Another great classic of adventure cinema for kids of all ages
One year on from the unexpected box office success of the first Zanna Bianca, the sequel was made using primarily the same cast and crew. This time, however, the story isn’t an adaptation of the work of Jack London, although it does try to remain as faithful as possible to the spirit of the original. This second instalment gives even more opportunities for action and adventure, while maintaining intact the pessimistic view of mankind that characterised the previous outing: greed, violence and the harshness of nature are just some of the ingredients that ensure the film is anything but a saccharine fairytale for children. And if it is a fairytale, it’s a dark one. It features breathtaking locations (shot in Canada and Austria) and action sequences that will have you glued to the screen: above all, White Fang’s fight with an eagle, and what is probably the most exciting chase scene on sleds ever filmed. Once again, audiences go crazy for it.
The Klondike at the end of the 19th century. The deceitful and unscrupulous Beauty Smith pretends to be a paraplegic and controls an entire town with his bullying, deceitful and corrupt ways. However, he and his henchmen will meet their match in White Fang (a cross between a dog and a wolf), little Bill, a famous journalist, a nun, and other characters who decide to join the fight for good. In a series of adventures that includes eagle attacks, dirty tricks, avalanches, and a breathtaking sled race to secure ownership of a mine.
