Movie Info

Adapted by Brian Moore from his own novel, The Black Robe is a sprawling recreation of a turbelent period in Canadian history. In 1634, Jesuit missionary Father Laforgue (Lothair Bluteau) arrives in the New World, hoping to convert the Huron Indian tribe to Catholicism-and, incidentally, to expedite the French colonization of Quebec. Laforgue is regarded with a combination of warmth and wariness by the natives, who refer to Laforgue and his fellow priests as "black robes". Offering his services

Audience Reviews for Black Robe

Beautiful scenic photography of the area in and around Ontario. I love historical based movies, so I very much enjoyed this. A jesuit priest travels to the Americas from France to "save" the savages from themselves. Interesting subject, because this perspective seems more the reality than what we've been taught in school. May be a little slow for some, but the story is engaging, and the acting and directing is of high calibur.

Often simply too pat to enjoy, and all the ending manages to accomplish is closing the film.

This film about a French missionary?s journeys among the Algonquin?s during the colonial era has often been called a Canadian Dances with Wolves, but this story is a lot bleaker and probably more realistic than that Kevin Costner vehicle. The main character is a frustratingly stubborn religious fanatic who never realizes the damage he?s doing by trying to convert the Native Americans to his ways. It?s very well made and it conveys the period quite well. However, the acting is a bit weak and the story itself doesn?t really go much of anywhere. It gets an ?A? in the historical reenactment department, and probably a ?C? in the narrative storytelling department.

A good movie, with an interesting story to it. The action with the Native wars was pretty cool and graphic on some scenes. A good one.
