Black Robe Review

Black Robe (1991) was an interesting film but I found some things predictable? Probably due to the previous history classes that I have taken before which detailed on religious crusades and pilgrimages in hopes of “converting” those who do not follow the Roman Catholic faith.

I find it ironically convenient how after plaguing not only one but two tribes, the Jesuits can just flee back to their country of origin when things go wrong. At the end of the film the quote says, “Fifteen years later, the Hurons, having accepted Christianity, were routed and killed by their enemies, the Iroquois. The Jesuit mission to the Hurons was abandoned and the Jesuits returned to Quebec.”
