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.
