the missing(2003) x the last of the mohicans(1992)(U.S movies)



the missing(2003) :set in the late 19th-century New Mexico, Samuel Jones (Jones) reappears hoping to reconcile with his adult daughter Maggie Gilkeson (Blanchett). She is unable to forgive him for abandoning the family and leaving her mother to a hard life and early death. This situation changes when an Apache medicine man and a dozen of his followers who have left the reservation pass through the area, ritualistically killing settlers and taking their daughters to be sold into prostitution south of the American border. Among those captured is the eldest daughter of the family, Lily.click here for complete info
the last of the mohicans(1992):The story takes place in 1757 during the Seven Years' War (known in America as the French and Indian War), when France and the United Kingdom battled for control of the North American colonies. During this war, the French often allied themselves with Native American tribes in order to gain an advantage over the British, with unpredictable and often tragic results.click here for complete info
the link is the original source of the synopsis article,I just want to share it with the reader aside to my personal comment.
comments:i love both of the movies,although the basic line of the story is similar.the difference is in the main characters connections,about relationship between man-woman and father-daughter, the will to survive and saving our love ones from cruel savage indian.i love the last of the mohicans though,coz its more interesting,especially the love story(^_^).recommended for those who love good quality movies.
