Movie Info

Ireland, 1209. A small group of monks begin a reluctant pilgrimage across an island torn between centuries of tribal warfare and the growing power of Norman invaders. As they escort their monastery's holiest relic to Rome, the true value of the bejeweled relic becomes dangerously apparent and their path becomes increasingly fraught with danger.

  • For all its bloody and violent genre trappings, "Pilgrimage" is a gorgeously shot film that carefully renders the details of this fascinating historical period.

  • It's interesting as far as it goes, but you wish it would have gone farther.

  • As a bloody spectacle, the feature steadily builds in novelty and suspense to a queasily rousing final fight. As a meditation on the possible merits of such brutality, however, it's facile and self-satisfied.

  • It's an odd mixture of Sunday church and comics that probably should have chosen one or the other.

  • Here the filmmakers take a chance and turn a strange-seeming premise into a fast-moving tale.

  • This is one rough-and-tumble medieval Irish religious adventure, my friends.

Audience Reviews for Pilgrimage

Set in the 13th century, Pilgrimage is about a group of monks who have to carry a powerful relic across Ireland to be sent to the Pope. Boasting of beautiful cinematography, Pilgrimage is brutal and gruesome from the get go. Great casting of some of the best actors, but the director missed an opportunity to deliver the nuances and depth of the dark side of religion corrupted by power.
