Movie synopsis
A visually stunning epic, THE MISSION recounts the true story of two men--a man of the sword (Robert De Niro) and a man of the cloth (Jeremy Irons)--both Jesuit missionaries who defied the colonial forces of mighty Spain and Portugal to save an Indian tribe from slavery in mid-18th-century South America. Mendoza (De Niro) is a slave trader and colonial imperialist who murdered his own brother (Aidan Quinn) and seeks penance for his sins by becomining a missionary at Father Gabriel's (Irons) mountaintop mission; Gabriel is a devout and idealistic man who extols nonviolence and peaceful interaction with the natives and colonialists. Despite their differences, the two men must unite to save the mission when Spain, Portugal, and the Catholic church begin negotiating their boundaries in the area--negotiations that will affect both the freedom of the natives and the well-being of the Jesuit missionaries who have set up safe havens for them. Director Roland Joff�'s sweeping masterpiece is a haunting account of the unjust treatment of the Guarani Indians of South America and the men who fought desperately, in very different ways, to save them. The film features a mezmerizing musical score by Ennio Morricone that weaves a stunning combination of church choirs and native Indian panpipes into the lush images of the Brazilian rainforest., Explore the South American jungle with your entire family in the heartwarming film titled "The Mission". This 1986 British drama film, available in a two-disc set, shares the experiences of a Spanish Jesuit priest, Father Gabriel (Jeremy Irons) with a mercenary and slaver Rodrigo Mendoza (Robert De Niro). Set in the 1750s, this drama film revolves around Father Gabriel and his mission to convert a Guaraní community of South America to Christianity. Winner of many awards, "The Mission" has its music scored by the Italian composer Ennio Morricone. Pick this fantastic two-disc set movie to deepen your faith and religion.
