Reviews
Mine: Very well acted and directed. Interesting story about missionary workers in Canada. But is just so damded depressing that you wonder why someone would make such a story. I guess that it is important to tell such stories. Impressive, but not fun.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Epic look at a 17th-century Jesuit priest who goes to Quebec to colonize the "Indian" tribes. Director Beresford travels much the same territory as DANCES WITH WOLVES, but paints a much bleaker picture. Beautifully photographed (by Peter James) but graphically violent, this flawed, fascinating film is for demanding viewers.
