This exquisitely shot tale is set in 18th-century South America and tells of a Jesuit priest and a former slave trader who find themselves in an uneasy alliance as they try to protect a Guarani community from the Spanish army. Ennio Morricone’s haunting, melodic choral score is now considered to be one of the finest film soundtracks of all time.
