great film
27 April 2012 | by (morecambe, lancashire, england) – See all my reviews

1 saw this aired on the BBC. in England ,outstandingly beautiful film and close to the book, well before the dances with wolves, should have been released, would be really good in American history to balance the view of the first nations as noble savages or murdering barbarians, really good to understand an alternative viewpoint. The portrayal of the culture and spirituality was a breathe of fresh air. Would like to see it out on DVD. the cgi was really sympathetic to the process of vision questing and not at all over the top. Does anyone know if there is a DVD out there? It was good to see native American actors but more would have been even better. the film i thought flowed easily.
