This movie has been watched by me almost as many times as I have watched Star Wars. It is one of the most beautiful visually stimulating movies I have seen as well as being a fantastic story. It is the first story of Native Americans to treat them with dignity, majesty and respect that I know of. I was surprised that Trevor Howard (a wonderful English actor) was chosen to portray the old Windwalker. However, he spoke the native dialect (I believe Cheyenne)with great dignity and reverence. The story is wonderful! The scenery is not to be beaten. The Native American actors were fantastic and you cannot find a better way to spend your time than sharing this with your whole family.

The movie WINDWALKER is a little gem of a film and rates as a 'must' for anybody interested in videos about Native Americans. As an Englishman,I found it unusual to find a fellow Englishman playing the part of a Native American. English actor Trevor Howard plays the elder Windwalker and does it very well,coping with the Cheyenne dialect competently and acting the part with conviction.Another white actor,James Remar(of "The Warriors"fame)shares the spotlight as the younger Windwalker and not looking at all,out of place.A young Billy Drago also has a part,playing a Crow scout,although Drago looks out of place, miscast as a white man trying to play a native.Nick Ramus is well cast as the twin brothers that make up the basis of the story and the rest of the native cast all play their respective parts well. The storyline is a novel one, enhanced by supernatural overtones which formed the basis of the Native American culture,underlining the human self-worth of the Native American warrior societies.Filmed on location in the Winter,the scenery is stark and forboding,adding to the film's realism and atmosphere.

I too am Native American, born on the Cheyenne River Reservation. While it would have been nice if there had been native American actors, this film broke the stereotype and was the first to present the Native Americans in an authentic way in spite of the christian influence of the ending. My first reaction on seeing Trevor Howard in the lead when i saw this film in the theatres was one of disappointment. However, after seeing the picture and the way he portrayed the grandfather, I realized that the director knew what he was doing. The way of life, environment and regalia are 100% accurate, as is the Crow and Northern Cheyenne dialog. While some Native Americans dish the movie because of the lack of Native American actors, they miss the point. For the first time, our culture and lifestyle are accurately reported, in a respectful, dignified way. This is my favorite Native American movie, far superior to Dances With Wolves which I also liked.

If I could rate this a 6 or even 10 I would. I saw this movie when it was released. I purchased the video...nearly wore it out. I loaned it to a friend, who never returned it, and then moved overseas...and have been desperate to find another copy ever since. I think I'll buy 2, because NOT having this movie to watch is agony. Every time I watch it, I laugh, I cry, I get angry. The only movie I ever experienced that got me so totally involved. It is a masterpiece. It takes you to a time and place that no longer exists...the real "America"...when the native people lived according to their customs and traditions and religion untainted by other cultures. Unique. Beautiful. Moving. Best natural motion picture ever made.

Set in 1797, this is the story of a great Cheyenne warrior. Indeed, the film starts with the old man telling his life's story to his grandchildren as he lies dieing. He tells of the great love of his life, of his two twin boys, and of the evil ones who slew his wife and carried off one of the twins. He searched for his son all of his life but never recovered him. Now, at the end of his life, the warrior resigns himself to the Great Mystery, his quest unfinished.
Yet, the Great Mystery is not through with the old warrior in this world. He awakes wrapped in his robes, high in the air on his death platform. Has he been left for dead- or was he actually dead and returned? Either way, it is a good joke by the Grandfather, the Great Spirit.
The old man finds the strength to seek out his family. He trusts the Great Spirit to guide and provide for him. It turns out that his family is in great danger from the same evil ones who took his son so long ago. It is time to set things right again.
I am glad to see that this film finally made it onto DVD. My old VHS was about worn out.

"Windwalker" is without a doubt one of the most wonderfully filmed movie in film history..The Nature scenery is Magical and breathtaking..And being on dvd it more then heightens the exsperiance..Not to take anything away from another great movie "Dances with Wolves" but Windwalker makes Dances with Wolves look amateur like..Windwalker is also along the same kind of line as Dances with Wolves..But Windwalker is entirely filmed with the words spoken in the various American Indians languages..With English Subtitles..Don't worry to follow the Subtitles is very easy for there isn't much spoken word in this movie..So you should have no problems with the subtitles..When this movie came out my girlfriend at the time TarynAngel is Indian (note her family doesn't like the term of politcal correctness of "Native Americans" her and her family say we been Indians for years now all of suddon we are told there is something wrong with the word Indian)..Taryn & I have remained good friends all these years..Her and my Mandy also became best of friends..I hope that amazon.com doesn't mind me asking the reader to pray for the safe return of Taryn (along with 2 other good friends of ours) who are currently in IraQ helping with the animalife crisis..Ok back to the movie WINDWALKER..So i seen this movie with an Indian girl closer then close to my side in the theater..That added to the Magic of this movie..Neither one of us never forgot the overwealming exsperiance of this movie..It is a marvelous America Indian story through the generations..On his Deathbed a Cheyane Warrior named "Windwalker" tells his grandchildren his story..He tells of his life as a young brave..His falling in love and marriage to a very beautiful Indian girl..To them are born twin sons..Read more ›
