:First I must say that I love everything that DDL says, does, etc in this film. But I must also say that the more I watch the film, I develop a strong affection for the soft, yet powerful relationships between Hawkeye, Uncas & Chic. One scene which touches me is an early scene at the Cameron's cabin, when they are kidding Uncas about marrying and having children.
The young boy tells Uncas to have a son like him...and Uncas says, no it will make him too old too fast. Watch Chic's face while Uncas is talking. His eye quickly dart back & forth from the boy to Uncas...as if he can still see some of the "boy" that Uncas used to be.
Soft, beautiful symbolism....I think that is the unspoken tenderness that I find so endearing about this film.
