5.0 out of 5 stars spellbinding!, September 20, 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Legends of the Fall [VHS] (VHS Tape)
I must admit I've never been much of a fan of Brad Pitt, but in this film he is super. So are Aidan Quinn, Anthony Hopkins (as usual), and Henry Thomas. To those who don't understand Tristan's (Pitt's) behavior, you must realize he is the true noble savage, having been virtually raised by the great One Stab, a native american family member. The narration by One Stab ties the vast expanse of this epic film together and makes all the difference between the masterpiece that it is and the dopey melodrama that some have called it. This film combines elements of "Jeremiah Johnson", "A River Runs Through It", and "Dances With Wolves" with a moving tragic romance. The Big Sky scenery is majestic. Pitt proves he is a big-league actor. If you haven"t seen it yet, please do; you won't be disappointed.

I bought this a few years ago, after I saw it. This movie is HUGE in every definition of that word. The scope. the scenery, the ENORMOUS story which does NOT become a mere soap opera!

And the musical score!!!! magnificent in every way. Too beautiful to describe.

And here, in this movie, Brad Pitt's star quality shows. I had never paid much attention to him...and now definitely not. BUT...in the movie that will remain with you for days on end....unforgettably fortelling.

I don't know if this movie received any awards....but I would give it everyaward possible.

If anyone hasn't seen it....do yourself a favor and do so.

It does not wrap up in a lovely bow. It is realistic.
