Japan, second half of the 17th century. Two young Jesuits (Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver) travel to Japan in search of a missionary (Liam Neeson) who, after being tortured, has renounced his faith. A film by Martin Scorsese that, based on a well-known novel published in 1966 by Shusaku Endo, focuses on the persecution suffered by Japanese Catholic Christians in the 17th century after the Shimabara Rebellion.
The film has as its axis the figure of a Portuguese Jesuit magnificently embodied by Andrew Garfield, and configures an intense, complex, mature psychological drama with a historical background around faith and beliefs; to sacrifice and martyrdom in pursuit of an idea; to the possible distinction between feeling and symbolism; or the need for freedom of religion and thought in a society without oppression.
The exhibition moves between the lyrical, the epic and the gore, Scorsese handling a long story in a sad tone with echoes of a physical-mental odyssey a la Joseph Conrad and interesting twists, despite the fact that greater narrative synthesis is missed, in an excessive rivet of psychological distress with too much voice-over and repeated motives for almost masochistic, suffering gloating.
