I couldn't drag my boyfriend to the cinema to watch this so as soon as it came out on DVD I organised a girly night in and my best friend and I watched it. We both agreed that Tristan and Isolde is a great love story but even more heartwrenching than Romeo and Juliet or Wuthering Heights. The simple difference between the aforementioned and Tristan and Isolde is that honour is more important to Tristan than it is to Romeo or Heathcliffe. And......Tristan's father figure is not an ogre so it's impossible to take Tristan's side in saying that Isolde shouldn't be with him! As we watched the film we became ever more frustrated because it simply wasn't fair! Rufus Sewell was on top form as usual and James Franco was gorgeous! Girls watch it but be warned, it isn't for the faint hearted!
