News & Interviews for At Play in the Fields of the Lord
Critic Reviews for At Play in the Fields of the Lord
These messages are buried in the very fabric of the film, in the way it was shot, in its use of locations, and we are not told them, we absorb them.
Well over three hours in length, and at best a masterpiece manque, At Play in the Fields of the Lord obviously will not enjoy a 20-week run. For all of its flaws, however, the passion and devotion of Hector Babenco's film comes through.
A thought-provoking film about cultural conflict, power, progress, and the dire consequences of messianic thinking.
Audience Reviews for At Play in the Fields of the Lord
A strong film that makes the best use of great performances, beautiful locations and a gorgeous score to tell a thought-provoking story about cultural differences and the white man's abusive condescension (especially religious) toward those he considers inferior and primitive.
Not as effective a film as "The Mission" which covered the same themes but it is worth checking out if you have nothing else on the go.
