quasi per caso robert hode, nobile sassone del xii secolo, diventa un fuorilegge in lotta contro un normanno, tracotante e sfruttatore, che gli ha usurpato il titolo e i beni.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best robin hood film 22 Dec 2011
By janet
the best robin hood film...made at the same time as the ridiculous kevin cosner epic...but filmed in a muddy and more realistic north wales...no american accents hoorah ...and some european actors give it an impression of authenticity...though of course it is only a story but a great one at that. This has been much watched on vhs so glad to find it at last on dvd....but how bonkers it isn't available in the uk.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good film, much underrated 31 July 2011
ROBIN HOOD 1991 Directed by John Irvin

As a collector of books and films relating to Robin Hood I have got to say that in my opinion, this very under rated, much maligned and over looked film is by far the better of the two Robin Hood films released in 1991. The other was of course the Kevin Reynolds film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, starring Kevin Costner which has it's own virtues of a different kind.

Directed by veteran British director John Irvin, the film features a distinguished cast which today reads like a who's who of European cinema, led by Patrick Bergin (Ireland), Jurgen Prochnow (Germany), Edward Fox (UK), Jeroen Krabbe (Netherlands), Owen Teale and a mostly British supporting cast and was filmed in the Marches and North Wales.

Bergin's performance as Robin is at times a bit understated but the humour and English stubbornness and indignation come across in character and in many ways is similar Flynn's interpretation. Prochnow is excellent as the menacing villain and Krabbe gives a characteristic quality performance as Robin's Norman overlord and friend. As usual Edward Fox steals the scene in his cameo appearance as a slightly aging Prince John. Uma Thurman, makes a nice petulant, Marion.

The script is good with the historical background well presented and the scenery absolutely stunningly filmed at times, giving the whole film a genuinely medieval feel and atmosphere.

I like this film and re-visit it regularly, it is such a shame that DVD copies are not available on the high street in the UK.
I was fortunate to catch this film at a US cinema when it was briefly released before going straight to cable television and subsequently purchased the VHS tape for my collection when it was available in the UK.

5.0 out of 5 stars How Red was Robin Hood? 8 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase
I think this is probably the best Robin Hood movie ever produced (which is no faint praise, because I'm *in* Ridley Scott's more recent one somewhere) and, because it was made in the same year as Prince of Thieves, has been entirely buried. The only place I've found to buy this English story, made in England with a British cast (not meaning to seem nationalistic or anything) is Italy - fortunately the DVD has an 'in Inglese' option. Seriously - Kostner Schmostner - this is by far the better movie.

Filmed in Cheshire in and around the Victorian Peckforton Castle in December 1990, this is very much a Robin Hood from the 1980s, and all the better for that; England is divided between the clean cut, rich Normans and the hairy, grubby, poor Saxons. The text is laced with reference to the social injustice of rich overlords living on the labour of the poor, and the point that the Normans, being the grandsons of Viking pirates, have no moral authority whatsoever, is tellingly made more than once, as is the one about robbing the rich only being acceptable if the loot is re-distributed to the poor. The script is unashamedly Left Wing, and in places powerfully angry, little wonder when you consider that it was written by Socialists after a decade of Thatcherism.

But to balk at this is to miss (or avoid) the point; the tale of Robin Hood is, at bottom, a fundamental questioning of the ruler's right to rule.

3.0 out of 5 stars A wolf in sheeps clothing? 20 Dec 2013
By Mr. S. Storey TOP 500 REVIEWER
This depiction of Norman/Saxon England is a boggy and dark affair. The set dressing and costume department went for authenticity rather than the more romantic vision I'm used to. This "warts and all" presentation is a bold and daring step which might 'look right' but some of the scenes are shrouded by a misty and overcast air even when indoors. Although the tale is familiar, I found parts of the screenplay quite refreshing especially when making reference to Norman overlords in a Saxon land. I struggled with the first class cast, Jurgen Prochnow chews some his dialogue but even as a villain he has strong and sympathetic scripting. When we first meet our Robin (Patrick Bergin) a heavy cloak slopes his shoulders making him look a rather weedy nobleman. His foolish pride brands him an outlaw and whilst he doesn't transform into the squared jawed hero I'm used too, he's energetic enough during the action scenes and has a real sense of fun about him. Uma Therman is a rather dour looking Marion, her acting chops get her through the part well enough but dowdy costumes and her having to play the part of a boy during the middle segment dampened the romantic aspects for me. I remember seeing this at the cinema and being rather dissappointed by it, although since then I've come to appreciate it's subtle merits. Rather like the more recent Ridly Scott version, the movie ends but the story doesn't; Robin takes the castle, and then marries Marion, jarringly though, in terms of storytelling, Prince John is still a force to be reconed with. The final shot of the wedding is a bit odd, the clouds part to reveal a sunny sky as members of the cast gaze upwards in genuine wonder. The social aspects of the scripting and the authentic approach to production did detract from the idea that this is supposed to be entertainment but having said that, it's still a really decent movie and a refreshing take on the tale. One thing is sure, I wont have to wait too long before someone has another crack at it.
