Black Robe

"Good"

Black Robe Review


A Jesuit in a black robe travels to remote 1600s Canada, trying to reach a mission to the Huron tribe deep in the wintry Quebec country. Guided by Algonquins and encountering troublesome Iroquois, our hero as the brush which is used to paint a nuanced picture of historical time few people know very much about. Though the film tends to wander in its latter half, the stunning winter sets and excellent score generally transcend its weaknesses.
