The Mission(EM Retro)
In the 18th century, the Jesuit missionary went into the Argentine jungle to preach to the indigenous people. The film portrays the story of the missionaries, played by Robert De Niro and Jeremy Irons, who overcome the trials of faith and fight against the colonial invasion. As the maestro says, “Music is the one true art that truly draws near to the eternal Father and to eternity.” Morricone sets the transcendental and spiritual tone of the film; a magnificent arrangement of the famous oboe piece and choir, which ends with a blend of indigenous musical instruments and the chorales.
