Do the Right Thing vs Black Robe Compare and Contrast Do the Right Thing and Black Robe are two completely different films yet they exhibit many of the same themes and conflicts Do the Right Thing is set in modern times in one of the worst neighborhoods in all of Brooklyn While Black Robe is set in the early 1600s in the wilderness of the Northern part of the United States The main characters in each film face a lot of similar struggles issues and problems within the environment they live One of the significant parallels I noticed is between that of the two main characters Sal and Father LaForgue They are both minorities in the society which they live in Sal an Italian owns a pizzeria in a predominantly black area of NYC while Father LaForgue a Frenchman travels with the Indians Sal knows he has to be careful about what is said within and around his restaurant If the wrong thing were said the whole neighborhood would have his ass as it did at the end of the movie LaForgue also cannot afford to say anything offensive to the Indians because he is trying to convert the Indians Throughout both movies the main characters are just working towards a common goal Sal is trying to sell as many pizzas as possible and LaForgue is trying to convert as many Indians as possible Another significant parallel is the behavior of the main characters son or sons LaForgues son tends to be a little careless and obnoxious Daniel a Frenchman falls for Annuka which is Chominas daughter not thinking of what the consequences would be I am sure the Indians do not want her marrying a Frenchman If Chomina would have caught them having sex Daniel probably would have been killed Then he has the nerve to chase her when she leaves and then he leaves his own father I think
