Storyline

Charlemagne and saracen Agramante are at war. Although the Franks are outnumbered by their enemies they succeed in containing them in the Pyrenean foothills. A truce is signed between the two sides, during which Agramante treacherously sends Angélique, a beautiful seductress of his retinue,to the paladin camp. Meanwhile the emperor has decided to give his daughter Aude to his brave nephew Roland but chance has it that she meets Renaud,Roland's lieutenant, first. The two young people fall in love. Later on, the truce is broken and fight resumes. Betrayed by Ganelon, Roland is momentarily disowned by his uncle. Written by Guy Bellinger

Warfare pauses for Soap Opera
12 February 2004 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Its Saracens versus Charlemagne's army. It begins as a holy crusade film and then turns into a soap opera as the knights encounter their true loves. The film then returns to the battlefield. The film ends rather abruptly when peace is declared, but I guess thats the way wars generally run. You'll forgive the lack of details it wasn't really all that interesting.
