Moving tale of the alliance between a Jesuit priest and a slave trader in 18th-century South America.
Dir Roland Joffé
With Robert De Niro, Jeremy Irons, Ray McAnally
In eighteenth-century South America a Jesuit priest and a former slave-trader find themselves caught up in an uneasy alliance as they try to protect a Guarani community that has converted to Christianity from the Spanish army. Morricone’s hauntingly melodic, partly choral score is considered by many to be one of his finest film soundtracks.
