A Jesuit priest (Irons) and a former slave trader (Mendoza) find themselves in an uneasy alliance in remote South America.
Dir Roland Joffé
With Robert De Niro, Jeremy Irons, Ray McAnally
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.
