Dances with Wolves

Dances with Wolves

tytuł polski: Tańczący z wilkami

director / reżyseria: Kevin Costner

USA, 1990

Ordered to hold an abandoned army post, John Dunbar found himself alone, beyond the edge of civilization. Thievery and survival soon forced him into the Indian camp, where he began a dangerous adventure that changed his life forever… (the publisher’s descritpion)

The movie Dances With Wolves has something  more than what the above description mentions. The subject of this film covers many problems, such as the fight between good and evil, love, Indian culture and their tragic history, as well as many answers to the question that more and more people are asking themselves: what are we to do to make our lives happy? Undoubtedly, everyone will find something for themselves in this film. I was most interested in the Comanche lifestyle and their approach to the world.

An important aspect of the film is the theme of things and people passing away. Nothing lasts forever and eventually terrible, unstoppable times will come and dust what was once an oasis for people like John Dunbar, Wind in His Hand, Stands with a Fist and the rest of the Indians.  Yet everyone has to live on and not turn around to get back because only this will ensure our survival in times that get more and more difficult.

I think everyone should watch this movie. Not only to get to know the history of the Indians, but to look at the world through the eyes of John Dunbar and fall in love with it again.
