A demanding film filled with complexities and meant for the discriminating viewer.
This compelling tale of adventure set in 17th century Canada is a spiritual classic
"Black Robe," the 1991 film directed by Bruce Beresford starts off wonderfully until it drifts into a completely different film about an hour into it. What started off as two very different cultures trying to understand each other bounded by trade is muddied and in the process becomes an uneven mess. The most interesting aspects of the film are demonstrated by the French and Natives trying to understand each other's concept of religion and had that been the whole picture it could've stood out as a great picture with beautiful cinematography. But, it seemed like they couldn't expand that idea and threw in tribal warfare out of fear audiences would get bored. Once the filmmakers threw that in was the minute I got bored with it. It's worth seeing just for the first hour.
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.
