In the 1840s, trappers with government backing push the Yellow Hands Sioux off their sacred land; they retreat into an apocalyptic spirituality, passively waiting for supernatural wrath to descend on their usurpers. Meanwhile, in England, Lord John Morgan feels his spirit weaken, so he returns to America to live again with the Yellow Hand. Finding them dispirited, he invigorates them as well as himself through self-imposed torture and other rituals. Once he convinces the clan to take direct action, Horse must devise a strategy to take the trappers' fort. The clan's women and boys take on special assignments to aid the assault to regain the sacred land.Written by
Reviews for the film criticized it for its scarcity of Native American actors in the cast, and for portraying a Sioux tribe requiring a white man's aid to defend itself. See more »
During the sun ceremony, John Morgan (Richard Harris) didn't have any scarring from the first time he underwent the ritual from five years earlier in the original film "A Man Called Horse". See more »
Original UK cinema and video versions suffered identical cuts (1 min 46 secs) to the buffalo hunt and shots of horsefalls in order to secure a lower rating. The BBFC waived some of these for the 2005 DVD release though 17 seconds of horsefalls remain edited. See more »
I loved the movie,because it showed the beautiful people,that the American Indians are. They are really, very spiritual people. I lived with a family (who did the dance),for about 4 months and it was by far the most interesting period of my life,so far. I learned a lot from this Wonderful family,I could go on. But my point that I want to make,is I understand why the Richard Harris character returned to help his old family. I have experienced many of the ways of the Indians in modern society. Seeing an Eagle fly,now makes me touch my heart with the knowledge of what it signifies.Their spirituality will touch your heart,IF you let it in.
