4.0 out of 5 stars Potent anti-war film courtesy of John Huston 7 Jan 2012
By The CinemaScope Cat TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
During the Hundred Years War (1337-1453) between France and England, a young student (Assaf Dayan) and a young noblewoman (17 year old Anjelica Huston, still a novice at acting but looking quite lovely) attempt to escape the slaughter by fleeing to the sea and, hopefully, a ship to freedom. Along the way, they find destruction, vengeance, cruelty even from the Church itself while keeping their love alive. While absolutely an anti-war film, the director John Huston doesn't preach to us the insanity of war, he shows us. As these two young lovers, almost still children, walk through the nightmarish existence and images of carnage and havoc, your heart breaks for them realizing it's only a matter of time before they become victims of its apocalypse. The acting is rather primitive (contemporary reviews were particularly unkind to Ms. Huston) but this isn't a film where acting is all that important. Huston's direction keeps the storyline compelling enough to hold our interest. The virile cinematography is by Edward Scaife (DIRTY DOZEN) and there's an eloquent score by Georges Delerue to accompany it. With John Huston as Anjelica's uncle, Michael Gough, Robert Lang and Anthony Higgins.

The MC-one DVD from Germany is an above average anamorphic wide screen (1.85) transfer with the option of either English or German soundtracks.

By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Widely regarded as one of John Huston's worst films and a disastrous starring debut for daughter Anjelica, A Walk with Love and Death turns out to be less an attempt to cash in on the surprise success of Zeffirelli's Romeo and Juliet and more a fascinating attempt to portray the medieval mindset. In many ways it's a low budget companion piece to James Clavell's The Last Valley mixed with a medieval romance, albeit without the sensuousness Zeffirelli would have given it (though Georges Delerue's beautiful score does its best to provide it), capturing the alienation and confusion of a time when the old order is breaking down as the Hundred Years War begins and the peasants rebel, the surviving population's lives dependent on the whims of soldiers passing through the countryside or religious fanatics wanting to physically separate sinners from the temptations of the flesh as they await the imminent Apocalypse. It's the worst of times to fall in love, so naturally that's exactly what student Hero du Fois (Moshe Dayan's son Assi) and young noblewoman Claudia (Anjelica Huston) do. Both share a naïve dream that if they can cross the war-torn country to the sea everything will be all right, but it's clear that neither really believes in their impromptu pilgrimage. There's some optimism in the idea of change and - a truly radical concept for the times - taking fate into one's own hands. Like the hero and heroine's love it's doomed, of course, much like the film itself was, which only adds to the film's occasionally spellbindingly fatalistic tone.

From that point in his career when Huston senior could still get modestly budgeted films made but couldn't get much interest in them from distributors or audiences, the film is somewhat compromised by its two leads.

2.0 out of 5 stars Huston's folly 8 Sep 2008
Format:DVD
An unusually pallid movie from one of cinema's greatest directors, A Walk
With Love and Death is set during the Hundred Years War yet seems curiously in tune with the late sixties' period (the time it was actually
made) of anti-war sentiment & flower power. A film-maker not noted for
pacifist tendencies, Huston has his young medieval lovers taste the violence of the period only to reject it & submit passively to their own
deaths. The most telling piece is the director's own appearance as a canny
old aristocrat who switches his allegiance to the side of the insurrectionists whom fortune seems to favour. Now THAT is Huston; the rest of the film is not. Two stars for technical achievement only.

2.0 out of 5 stars A start in the business 22 Nov 2011
Format:DVD
I bought it since my father was on the crew. An obvious 'first film' for Anjelica Houston, directed by her father, but I didn't think much of it other than its sentimental interest.

1.0 out of 5 stars Idiots at 20th Century Fox are at it again.... 27 Sep 2013
By Sandoz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Well, after continual complaints from film fans over the past few years, it seems the morons who run the home video division at Fox either are incompetent, or even worse, contemptuous and just ignore their demands that their widescreen films being released in their "Cinema Classics" series get released on dvd in their CORRECT WIDESCREEN FORMAT.

Yet here with A Walk With Love And Death being a new release (on July 13, 2013), once again Fox has thrown out a 1:85 widescreen film in a full frame 1:33 format.

I strongly urge all film fans to avoid this U.S. release (especially at the exorbitant list price of $20!) and if they really want it in their collections to seek out the U.K. region 2 BFI release which has a restored version of the film in it's proper widescreen format. Even with a higher shipping cost from the UK it's still a few dollars cheaper than this insulting U.S. release.

The MC-One DVD via Germany is an above average anamorphic wide screen (1.85) transfer with the soundtrack in either English or German. I can't speak for the Spanish version (which I hear is poor) or the British DVD (which I hear is quite nice).

A rare look at the young Anjelica Huston and her work. A raw look at the Middle Ages, with settings and theme music that should soothe and please the heart of any fan of the era.

2.0 out of 5 stars JOHN HUSTON, OPUS 27 23 Feb 2012
By Daniel S. - Published on Amazon.com
Rarely seen nowaday , this movie could be considered as a study of class relations in the Middle Ages between the Nobles, the Church and the rest of the Nation. If you're not interested in these matters, you could possibly like the main plot describing a love story between a scholar and a noble damsel trying to survive and find happiness in the middle of a civil war. For my part, A Walk with Love and Death is already forgotten. Unfortunately.
