Product Description

Product Description

From executive producer Ridley Scott (Gladiator) comes an action-packed saga of epic battles, political intrigue and forbidden passion. Rufus Sewell, James Franco and Sophia Myles star in this rousing adventure set in a time when the lines between heroism and savagery were etched in fire and carved out with broadswords.

From Amazon.co.uk

Luscious cinematography and even more luscious stars make Tristan & Isolde a feast for the eyes. Adapted from the medieval love story, the movie begins with with young Tristan (played as a child by Thomas Sangster, Love Actually) as he sees his parents killed by the tyrannical Irish, who ruled over a fractured Britain after the Roman occupation. Taken in by Marke (Rufus Sewell, Dark City), who rules one of the British tribes, Tristan (James Franco, Spider-Man) grows up to be a young prince and a mighty warrior--and when he's believed slain in battle, he's given a royal funeral, which sends him out sea in a burning boat. But the fire goes out and Tristan washes ashore on Ireland, where Isolde (Sophia Myles, Art School Confidential), the daughter of the Irish king, nurses him back to health. Being a lovely pair of young folk bursting with hormones, they fall madly in love... and set in motion a tragic tale that's lasted for centuries in many variations. Some reviewers have criticised Tristan & Isolde for deviating from the most common classical version, but the movie's storyline--though certainly altered to appeal to modern audiences--is fairly strong. Myles and especially Sewell turn in strong performances; Franco, however, though surprisingly persuasive as a warrior, never burns as a lover. Nonetheless, the loving shots of Franco's muscular physique will make this a must-have for his fans. --Bret Fetzer --This text refers to the DVD edition.

Being myself in the process of deeply exploring the myth from the written tradition of the 12th century to modern adaptations, I must admit this film is impressive because it saves us from both black and white magic and from too much suspension of our disbelief, or couldn't it be belief?

First of all the film shows the "real" historical context of this fable. It pushes it back to an undetermined period after the fall of the Roman Empire. But the various Germanic tribes are already in Britain, the Jutes, the Angles and the Saxons. The Celts were already there and the Picts are added to the picture with little real involvement. The Irish in Ireland are the only faction that is living in an island that had never been occupied by the Romans. They take advantage of the divided situation in Britain to prosper on these divisions by inciting systematic rivalry between the various entities, raiding the various regions and first of all Cornwall and capturing young men and women to become slaves in Ireland. The only missing element is King Arthur, but I guess that would be too much legend for us, the modern audience, so it was kept out of the picture though it is very much present in the old tradition of the 12th century.

Then the film becomes a savage, wild and brutal film of action that would not be saved by anything if it were only action because it is not reasonable and believable.

Tristian and Isolde is epic, old-fashioned, and handsomely produced and it features some of the best period detail I've ever seen in an historical film. Yes, it's often silly and corny, but the overall effect is one of eloquence and restraint with Director Kevin Reynolds, expertly capturing the political and tribal atmosphere of post-Roman Britain.

When the Romans left Britain in around 430AD, the country was left weak and fragile. The preyed-upon tribes, the Jutes, Angles, Saxons and Celts, among others, were yearning to unite against the region's Dark Ages dominant power, Ireland. Tristian (James Franco) finds himself caught up in this battle, when as a boy, Britain's powerful Lord Marke (an excellent Rufus Sewell), rescues him from a certain death after his parents are killed in an Irish attack.

Meanwhile, over on the west coast of Ireland, the lovely Isolde (Sophia Miles) is mourning the loss of her beloved mother who died by "ill vapors," leaving her at the mercy of her brutal father, the Irish King Donnchadh (David Patrick O'Hara), who is more concerned with using his gorgeous daughter for political expediency. When Tristian is mistaken for dead, and ends up shipwrecked in the Irish coast, Isolde finds him, nurses him - and loves him - without revealing her royal identity.

When his cover is blown, Tristian is forced back to Britain and when the couple next meet, she's the surprise "prize" wife, who will be donated to the winner of a tribes-of-Britain gladiatorial showdown, won by an unsuspecting Tristan on behalf of Lord Marke. Numerous torn loyalties, treacherous schemes, broken hearts, and bloody battles follow.

I cannot express just how much I loved this movie! The epic backdrop of scenes from the Irish coast and the Czech Republic (presented as England in the movie!) simply took my breath away! James Franco as Tristan of course steals the show with his portrayal of a man torn between honour, duty, and his one true love. Rufus Sewell as Lord Marke was as brilliant as I always expect him to be and Sophia Myles as Isolde was absolutely stunning! This is one of the true greats up there with Gladiator and should have received a much better response than it did! A timeless classic that you'll never forget

. . beautifully told in this visually stunning screenplay. Why was it not better known at the box office? My only conclusion is that unlike most left-liberal sponsored post-modern films the Irish are portrayed as the villains of the piece and the English as the heroes! That must have jarred with US audiences & the Notting Hill set! Set in the dark ages the film follows the adventures of English warrior Tristan who finds himself at the mercy of Irish princess Isolde. In hiding the pair fall in love but are soon torn apart by their warring peoples and by a code of loyalty and honour that is now all but forgotten. Rufus Sewell is simply superb as the sad but compassionate war leader Marke. The scenes of physical love are tender and sensitively recreated. The battle scenes are stunning. A grey, windswept pall hangs over the whole film to remind us that this is the dark ages but it does not detract from the lovingly filmed beauty of a nature free from motorways, housing estates and power lines. I thoroughly enjoyed this sweeping, adventurous, romantic legend so reminiscent of Lancelot & Guinevere. Recommended.
