Bold, thrilling adventure adapted from the novel by James Fenimore Cooper. Michael Mann’s perfectionism once again yields a cinematic gem, an impeccably photographed tale of strife between warring countries and their lust for domination over North America. As the British and French battle it out for power, a white man adopted by the Mohican tribe (Daniel Day-Lewis) takes the daughter of a British general () and her younger sister () under his protection. Day-Lewis makes an exciting and appealing action hero, while Stowe’s classic beauty and intelligence contribute to much of the film’s elegance.
