about 95% of this movie is in the Sioux Language. Richard Harris is an English Lord who is captured by a tribe of Sioux Indians. At first the Sioux make fun of him and force him to work for them as a slave. Richard Harris is great as "Horse" as he slowly adapts to living with the tribe. He undergoes the Sun ritual and it is a bit graphic. I found my self wondering how they did it in the days before CGI. Most of the Sioux were played by Sioux. We see how a tribe of Sioux lived back in the 1820's. It is not your typical western movie, no Cavalry to the rescue, no shootouts, no crafty bad guys and it is a very enjoyable movie.

Like most Blu-rays I purchase, "A Man Called Horse" far exceeds my expectations and still holds up dramatically to this day. Although, there are many that criticize the film for its lack of authenticity, this Richard Harris starrer is just as powerful and more streamline than its more famous successor, "Dances With Wolves" that also dealt heavily with the plight of Native Americans. And, Harris has far more interesting star power than Costner. "...Horse" delivers pathos, thrills and a dash of humor that takes hold of the heart and makes it soar.

I was at a used record store recently and I found the soundtrack for "Return of a Man Called Horse". I had remembered seeing the first movie "A Man Called Horse" with my dad many years ago. The desire to see this movie again after so many years prompted me to search on Amazon to see if the movie, and it's sequel, had ever made it to DVD/Blu Ray. I was glad to see that there was indeed a Blu Ray version of the first movie and the price wasn't that bad. The sequel seems to be only offered on DVD right now and it is kind of expensive...so I'll just have to wait on that one for a while.

I found that this particular Blu Ray release of the first movie to be done very well. The movie came out in the 70's and the picture quality on Blu Ray looks great for a movie made over 40 years ago. The landscapes that set the backdrop for this film are just amazing. Props, costumes, and set pieces do a wonderful job in this film's attempt to give the audience a peek into this culture. The movie also states in the beginning that the rituals recreated in the film were carefully studied/researched in order to give them as much authenticity as possible. I don't know if they are completely accurate or not...but it seems that they did make an effort to make them so. It's an amazing story and from what I read elsewhere, it is supposedly based on real events. Richard Harris does an amazing job of playing a character snatched from one world and thrown into another that eventually changes his life forever. The film primarily focuses on his life with this particular group of Native Americans (Sioux). As you can imagine, it certainly isn't very good at first but over time through understanding and appreciation, he learns quite a bit from this culture and something about himself too.

The Blu-Ray looks and sounds spectacular! The transfer is just impeccable. Having said that, I am curious about the 'R' rating that the packaging auggests. When this came out, it was rated 'M' which stood for "Suggested for Mature Audiences." Ignore the 'R' classification. This has to be wrong. There is brief profanity, bloodshed, a chilling ultra-realistic ritual called 'Vow to the Sun-God' and some instances of male and brief female backside nudity, as well as a bare breast, plus one tasteful sexual situation, but this does not rise to an 'R' rating. At the most, this would be PG-13. I work at a boarding school with American Indian boys, ages 9-12, and they LOVED this film, now begging me to show "Return of A Man Called Horse." A Man Called Horse is a powerful and unforgettable, beautifully photographed and acted film.

In the early seventies there was a ton of movies released that all dealt with the west from the perspective of the Indians. While we had been raised with movies that had savages attacking women and children for so long now we were presented with a group of humans who weren't the devil incarnate but just people who were different. Movies like LITTLE BIG MAN and SOLDIER BLUE came out. And in 1970 we had A MAN CALLED HORSE.

Richard Harris stars as John Morgan, an English nobleman who has left his homeland for a time and come to America. Out in the Wild West, he's enjoying a hunting trip that is suddenly disrupted by a group of Sioux Indians that attack his camp, kill and scalp his guides and then capture Morgan.

Naked and dragged behind a horse with a rope around him, Morgan is taken back to the Indian's camp and treated like the lowest of low. They view him as little more than a dog going so far as to keep him tied near them.

As time passes, Morgan begins to learn about the Indians and their ways with the help of Batise (Jean Gascon), another captive who has learned how to speak their language but can also speak English and French. Through the translations Batise provides Morgan learns about his position in the tribe as a captive and also how they live their lives, how they differ from the lives led by English nobles.

A day comes when the village the tribe lives in is about to be attacked by two members of another tribe. One of the boys takes out the first and Morgan leaps to attack the second, killing him with his own knife. As the boys scalp the first one, Morgan realizes to become accepted he must follow suit and does so to the second attacker.

Morgan becomes accepted among the tribe and must earn his place among them.
