      K B It's a typical 90's flick. On track with some of the other block busters. It's very slow but great scenery makes up for it. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/03/24 Full Review Alec B A fascinating exploration of a culture clash. What's great is that each of the main characters gets proven right in some way, even if it is ultimately horrifying. The movie also doesn't play with simplistic stereotypes as everyone feels totally real. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/21/24 Full Review Anthony J Excellent. Thoughtful. beautifully shot against a big landscape and you can almost feel the vastness, chill and remoteness. Grim, but very real. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 10/07/23 Full Review Paul G Vast and rugged, the wilderness of Quebec's Saguenay River is the true star of this somber film, which measures out the appallingly hard journey of 17th-century Catholic missionary Father Laforgue (Lothaire Bluteau) in scenes depicting great courage amid awesome natural beauty. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/18/23 Full Review Leaburn This film was very decent 👍🏼 Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member A fascinating exploration of a culture clash.
