This lushly produced fantasy has gained a loyal following since its release in 1985, and it gave a welcome boost to the careers of Matthew Broderick, Michelle Pfeiffer and Rutger Hauer. You have to ignore the overly aggressive music score by Andrew Powell, music director of the Alan Parsons Project (critic Pauline Kael aptly dubbed it "disco-medieval") and director Richard Donner's reckless allowance of anachronistic dialogue and uninspired storytelling, but there's a certain charm to the movie's combination of romance and heroism. Broderick plays a young thief who comes to the aid of tragic lovers Isabeau (Pfeiffer), who is cursed to become a hawk every day at sunrise and Navarre (Hauer) who turns into a wolf at sunset. The curse was cast by an evil sorcerer-bishop (John Wood), and as Broderick eludes the bishop's henchmen, Navarre struggles to conquer the villain, lift the curse and be reunited with his love in human form. The tragedy of this lovers' dilemma keeps the movie going, and Broderick is well cast as a young, medieval variation of Woody Allen. --Jeff Shannon

Product Description

The story of a love that can never be consummated. He is a wolf by night and she, a hawk by day — destined never to meet in human form, unless they can reverse the evil spell cast upon them. An exciting, action-packed suspense adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars A love story with a difference 20 Mar 2007
This film has just about everything: great direction by Richard Donner, who also directed The Omen, Superman and Lethal Weapon, beautiful cinematography by Vittorio Storaro and a wonderful cast - Rutger Hauer is perfect as the brave hero, Michelle Pfeiffer is breath-takingly beautiful as Isabeau and Matthew Broderick provides plenty of comic relief. There is a fine music score by Kate Bush's former arranger and producer Andrew Powell and there is romance, action, drama and humour.

This is the type of film which I never get fed up of watching time and time again and I am not ashamed to admit that the ending always brings tears to my eyes. With this DVD version the film can be viewed in its correct widescreen ratio, making the most of the stunning cinematography. This film is often shown on television but usually in a full screen, pan-and-scan version with the closing credits either edited or speeded up thus eliminating much of Andrew Powell's beautiful closing credits music. Therefore it is worth buying this DVD to see this film in it's complete and correct format.

5.0 out of 5 stars A movie to watch time and again 3 Dec 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I first saw this movie on video in the late '80s'. I was hooked and immediately bought a copy. The music, scenery and stars combine to make this a favourite. Michelle Pfeiffer looks terrific and Mathew Broderick is ideally cast, in fact it is the best thing he ever did. It does not date and I only hope I can get a DVD copy.

Let's be honest - how can you NOT like LADYHAWKE? It most definitely is one of the best medieval movies ever made.
Directed by Richard Donner who probably is best known for the great LETHAL WEAPON series does a fabulous job: the pacing is just right with plenty of action, while allowing enough time to develop all major characters thoroughly.
Stunningly beautiful cinematography by Vittorio Storaro - this picture was shot in Italy.
Edward Khmara wrote the story and co-wrote the screenplay. He also wrote the screenplay for ENEMY MINE and wrote the story of the TV mini series MERLIN.
Dutch actor Rutger Hauer as the black knight alone is worth seing LADYHAWKE, as he gives one of the best - if not the best - performances of his career, as does gorgeous Michelle Pfeiffer.
Matthew Broderick delivers some comic relief in one of his first starring roles as the thief Gaston.
John Wood as the malicious Bishop of Aquila and Leo McKern as Imperius were also a brilliant and most memorable additions to the generally great cast.
Arguably the movie's score was not to everyone's liking, and whereas a more classical approach presumably would have been more fitting because it is obviously more conventional, I can't help but ask, why? It's not the best of all scores, but it works quite well in the action scenes regardless.
Why LADYHAWKE didn't win the Academy Award for Best Picture is beyond me. It was nominated for two Academy Awards, Best Sound Editing and Best Sound Mixing, but ended up winning neither.

4.0 out of 5 stars 'THE CURSE HAS TO BE BROKEN' 22 Feb 2014
By rbmusicman TOP 500 REVIEWER
A magical fantasy adventure telling the tale of lovers that have been cursed
by the bishop at 'Aquila'
Captain Navare. (Rutger Hauer) becomes a wolf at night, 'Isabeau' a hawk
by day, the lovers destined by the curse never to be together as man and
The tale starts with young 'Phillipe Gastone' a thief being the first ever to
escape from the prison at the monastery in Aquila, the Bishop orders the
guards to hunt down the escapee, which eventually they do, however young
'Phillipe' is saved by 'Captain Navare' who has returned to the lands to
break he curse the Bishop has placed upon them, to do that he has to kill
the treacherous Bishop.(John Wood)
Young 'Phillipe' eventually works out that the wolf and his new companion
are one of the same, when, helping the injured Hawk by taking it to 'Imperius
for help, he see's the beautiful 'Isabeau'(Michelle Pfeifer)
To complete the quest the cursed couple need the help of 'Phillipe' (Mathew
Broderick) and indeed 'Imperius' (Leo Mckern)
The film, a love story, a fantasy adventure with swords and arrows, a pleasant
film that is family friendly in general, however I would advise caution with
younger viewers.....there are scenes of mainly moderate violence.
Good picture and Sound quality throughout this '1985' movie (121 mins)
English and French audio.....English, French and German sub-titles.
