Medicine Man: I listen to the screams of the wounded and dying carried on the wind across the prarie. It was about this time when the white men attacked, they slaughtered them. They slaughtered defenseless men, women and children. Their blood spilled here on this ground. We forget about these things, but the trees - they remember. The rocks and the earth... they remember when we forget. The story forever imprinted, imprinted on this land. If we listen they will guide us, give us visions, tell us stories. ...

I found this movie very enjoyable.
3 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie started out by moving from the modern life in the city to the Indian reservation of the main character. I don't know how much of what was portrayed is true and what is fiction. I assume the story was fiction. On one hand it is a study of guilt and what it can lead to. On the other hand it is a study of possible religious beliefs of this tribe of Indians and the upbringing of the main character. The tribe's Medicine man didn't have to do much acting as he was a natural for the part. He looked like Little Jimmy Dickens when I first saw him but of course he wasn't. The acting was OK but the story line and mysticism kept me involved with the story till the end. One thing I never did figure out was the roll of the wolf. This movie is a little old but if you get a chance to see it, take it. It will be worth your while.
