Seraphim Falls

{5/5} “‘What do you want?’ ‘I’d have thought that was obvious seein’ as I’ve been shootin’ at ya.'”

Seraphim Falls, released in 2006

In 1868 five men on a horse are chasing one man on a horse. One of the five shoots the man in the arm, and then he’s on the run on foot. He manages to confuse the others enough with his tracks to make it to a farmhouse where he gets patched up and acquires a horse. When the lead man catches up to him at one point and the man asks him why he’s doing this, he says it’s because of Seraphim Falls.

At the beginning you’re not sure who the good guys are and who the bad guys are. It’s full of tips on how to defeat or elude your enemy in the snowy wilderness.

It’s about a tragic mistake. It’s about men who have been at war, and are full of regret and revenge.

It’s brutal at times. There’s some beautiful scenery.

Stars Liam Neeson and Pierce Brosnan. Directed by David Von Ancken (the TV movie Awakening). The ominous music is by Harry Gregson-Williams.

This is the 2nd time I’ve seen it.
