Wonderful Retelling of The Legend
10 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lite Foot does a wonderful job as Hiawatha and Adam Beach is amusing as Chibiabos. Both show that they are capable of far more than this legend, however, it should not be taken lightly. This film was both beautiful and carefully filmed. None of it appears childish, as one might think upon stumbling over it during regular daytime TV. Rather, it is a humbling tale of suffering and searching for the salvation of the Indian Nation. It is well acted and well outfitted. I was troubled at first by the use of so many differing Indians from so many tribes; this would only occur to someone who can trace tribal characteristics. It's a heck of a lot better than allowing Whites to play Indians. In fact, it's so chock-a-block full of talented people that you can't tear your eyes from it. I too, was at first a little troubled by the lack of woodland costuming, but this would have been expensive and time-consuming to create. Woodland Flower beading and designs are intricate and lovely, but they were not missed after a few minutes of viewing. The splendid acting grabs a hold of you. I enjoyed it immensely. Recommended- however, there is some violence which my not be appropriate for viewers under 10 or 12 years of age. Adults may want to explain some of the ritual and religious implications with their children after viewing.
