Did You Know?


Betsy Small tells Henry Mellon that she is reading "The Wandering Jew," a sprawling French novel by Eugene Sou, published as a serial in 1844 and thereafter translated and published in popular magazines around the world. Henry, who can barely read, lies when asked if he has read it. In a subsequent scene, Betsy reads aloud a passage from the novel involving the characters Father Rodin, Mme. de la Sainte-Colombe and Dumoulin. Despite its title, this book is not so much anti-Semitic as anti-Jesuitical, portraying Rodin and other Jesuits as conspiratorial, greedy and vicious. See more »


Henry Mellon: I'm hurt pretty good.
Francis Mellon: Let me see. Open it up. All right. Put that hand on it, and hold it tight. OK? Just keep it like that, all right?
Henry Mellon: I'm sittin' down.
Francis Mellon: Don't sit down!

Mesmerizing -- you feel as if you are there
11 July 2016 | by janrigsbySee all my reviews

A civil war story about 2 brothers. A visual window into the human heart, where feelings seek resolution.

It's necessary to get over the lack of a steady-cam: the first few minutes can feel a bit disorienting, jerky, and off-putting because the camera is hand-held. Stay with it!

Very quickly, I became mesmerized. I felt as if I were transported to the time and place. The raw, realistic clothing, housing, and surroundings of that era (so different from today and seldom presented realistically) drew me into the time and place. I felt as if I were being privileged to watch real people -- without makeup, in their everyday clothes, struggling through horrific circumstances. I mourned the end of the movie, I would have gladly stayed with these people for another hour.

Acting, costuming, sets at their absolute best.I was intrigued by the reviews, saying that the movie was made for $500,000 when the military re-enactment scenes alone should have cost 4x that amount.
