This review is from: The Last Of The Mohicans  [DVD] (DVD)
Daniel Day Lewis plays the part of a colonial named Hawkeye, the adopted son of the last of the Mohican tribe. The film explores the bloody nature of colonial times, while at the same time introducing a beatifully acted romance. Madeleine Stowe plays the part of a British general's daughter, who eventually falls for Hawkeye. Amongst the Chaos of war between the French and British, Michael Mann explores the cultural abyss between colonials and transplants, and the barbaric war methods of homogenous tribesman. This is an enlightening film, set in lavish locations, with amazing cinematography. The soundtrack is also astounding. Don't let this one pass you by!

Andy: what is a 'homogenous tribesman' - something to do with being evenly mixed up?
Beatifully acted? (a crimson root vegetable, or ultra religious?)
"Cultural abyss between colonials and transplants? " - my favourite.
God knows what you are doing at Bradford College - but you aint learning English.
