The Mission (1986)
Jeremy Irons plays a Spanish Jesuit who goes into the South American wilderness to build a mission in the hope of converting the Indians of the region. Robert DeNiro plays a slave hunter who is converted and joins Irons in his mission. When Spain sells the colony to Portugal, they are forced to defend all they have built against the Portuguese aggressors.

I have read the other comments and am stunned by people who view The Mission in a negative light. It feels as though you are attacking a loved one – perhaps because this movie IS a loved one to me. Never, ever have I felt so deeply about a film. I don’t have any idea where to begin checking off the pro’s: cinematography? stupendous acting? heart-breaking subject matter? moving soundtrack? I don’t think it’s possible to do that with The Mission – one needs to absorb it as a whole. An entire masterpiece.

I was one of the fortunate ones to see this movie in a theatre back in the 80’s – we were visiting friends in another city and, for lack of anything better to do that evening, decided to see this film. To say I was moved would be such an understatement as to be ridiculous. It is the saddest commentary on what horrors have been perpetrated in the name of God….

I have seen this movie several times since then and own it now but I am always very careful whom I see it with and when I see it. You need to have a block of time set aside when you can completely immerse yourself in this film. Unplug the phone, put the kids to bed, make sure the dog doesn’t have to go out. If you don’t pay attention – from the very beginning to right after the credits – you will miss something important. Prepare yourself emotionally for The Mission. Step into it, live it, let it speak to you. Feel the struggle of all involved.
