Summary
Rarely does any film receive the unamimous critical acclaim accorded this sensitive and deeply-moving theme based on Margaret Craven's bestselling novel, which draws its title from the Indian legend that death comes "when the owl calls your name." Filmed amid spectacular natural scenery of British Columbia, it tells the powerful story of a young Anglican priest's awakening to life in the face of death. Unaware that he has only a short time to live, young Father Brian is sent by his Bishop to a remote Indian village in Canada, ostensibly to help the Indians but actually "to learn about life to be ready to die." By the time he hears the owl, the Indians have shown him that death, like life, is both beautiful and ugly, full of pain and joy
