Contentment with Crusoe
I actually found this movie to be quite intriguing, incorporating the use of humor at times but still able to effectively depict the desperation felt by Robinson Crusoe. There are no real disappointments during the viewing of this two parter and it may be challenging keeping up with the subtitles but at least it is one of the better versions to appear, that there is still a company out there willing to reiterate this story for a newer generation of viewers. The locations during the movies are absolutely breath taking and I found that it became useful that I knew as much about the French language as Friday did, making it almost equally (albeit the subtitles) as hard to understand what Crusoe was going on about when he is trying to teach Friday the more "civilised" ways. This movie is particularly insightful as it also deals with the themes and beliefs of two different cultures meeting together and how the beliefs of each are both challenged and united. It was an incredibly pleasing film, highly recommendable for viewing with very few scenes that would disturb an audience under twelve but is highly valuable to all ages.
