Ireland, 1209. An island on the edge of the world. A small group of monks begin a reluctant pilgrimage across an island torn between centuries of tribal warfare and the growing power of Norman invaders. Escorting their monastery's holiest relic to Rome, the monks' progress is seen through the eyes of a pious young novice and a mute lay-brother with a violent past. As the true material, political and religious significance of the bejeweled relic becomes dangerously apparent, their path to the east coast becomes increasingly fraught with danger. The monks belatedly realize that in this wild land of ancient superstitions, the faith that binds them together may ultimately lead to their destruction. Written by
about duty and faith and fundamental decisions.dark, cruel, bitter, poetic. for the embroidery of Gaelic, French and English, for landscapes, for a surprising Tom Holland, for memories about films of Herzog using Kinski in not very different films, for the illusion of exploration of XIII century basic traits, for the simplicity of story and the science to not be victim of comfortable clichés. and, maybe, too, for the feeling after its end. a good essay. this is the reasonable definition for "Pilgrimage" who could be appreciated for the fight scenes, for the religious side, for the decent sketch of a period, without ignore the not high historical accuracy, for the use of delicate themes, from the past to the holy relics, in an interesting manner.
