Set in early 17th century Japan, this bleak but very powerful adaptation of Endo Shusaku's award-winning novel explores the difficulties faced by Christian missionary priests in Japan. The film is told from the point of view of a fugitive Portuguese missionary who arrives in Nagasaki to spread Christianity and to track down a fellow priest who went missing decades before. What he discovers about religious tolerance and persecution proves shocking. In Japanese with English subtitles.

Requires a multi-standard (PAL/NTSC) DVD player, or a region-free or region 2 compatible player with a multi-standard (PAL/NTSC) television
