5.0 out of 5 stars An Engaging Tale . . ., 1 Nov. 2006
This review is from: Tristan And Isolde [DVD] (DVD)
. . 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.
