A Movie Review: Legends of the Fall (1994)

IMDb overview: Epic tale of three brothers and their father living in the remote wilderness of 1900s USA and how their lives are affected by nature, history, war, love, and betrayal. 

This is a story about a father who lives with his three sons in an isolated ranch. As his sons grow they all present entirely different personalities.

Of them all, Tristan, is the most impassioned and wild. While Tristan loves all his brothers, Samuel, is the one he is most protective of and due to that even when Samuel's fiancée gets taken with him and him with her, he is willing to put distance between him and her.

Unfortunately, war does make an appearance in father and sons' lives and changes it. Tristan becomes more withdrawn after this event and things do get out of hand until they eventually reunite after more heartbreaking things happen. Of course, before this all ends, we get a voice-over of how Tristan died, in a great fierce struggle just before he died and with an assurance that "it was a good death". Which was quite frankly hilarious.

I don't know, Legends of the Fall, is one of those movies that is more like a scenic movie. Every little thing like the mountain landscape getting highlighted in what you suspect is a truly cold morning makes it what it is. At once realistic but cinematographic. An added benefit being this movie is based on a lot of drama and the acting too is excellent from Brad Pitt to an actress like Julia Ormond.

Directed by: Edward Zwick
