I just discovered this, and I am sorry that it took so long. A high quality period drama with adventure mixed in, just wonderful.

No matter how many times I see this it never fails to move me. Morricone's score just got voted number 1 in Australia's ABC Classic FM's "Music in the movies" national top 100. As quoted at the end of this masterpiece, "A light shines in the darkness and the darkness has yet to overcome it."

Not sure how I missed this one all these years but I'm glad I bumped into it. The story moves along a short arc and takes its good old time, but you get all the bloat in the form of wide-angle shots overlooking beautiful mountains and the peaceful melody of the locals, its a very natural looking scene. I was worried this might get too "preachy" but it actually went the other way with it, so I was just fine. Lots of good character growth here while raising a few good philosophical questions. The director really plays on the fact that some of these guys are stage-actors, so expect some drama-milking. Deniro and Irons nail it though, so even those parts are watchable. Great costumes and sets, decent acting with a powerful message- 3.5/5

An excellent adventure/drama, perfectly casted. The story was brilliant, but rather slow. It felt much longer than it's 125-minute running time. De Niro was stunning though, and the cinematography was beautiful. A near-masterpiece. This is not to be missed.
