Like Tristan and Iseult
30 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Horrible script, horrible acting. It is true to the 60s in its attempt to make the characters natural and human, mostly coming across as an odd mixture of antiquated language and modern gesticulations and ways of conversing. However, it is interesting in that it is much closer to the story of Tristan and Iseult, one of the sources of the Lancelot and Guinevere story. Lancelot, like Tristan, is entrusted by King Arthur (King Mark) to escort Guinevere (Iseult) to Camelot. They fall in love during the journey, thanks to a soap that Lancelot jokes about as being a magical charm from Merlin (like the love potion labeled poison that Iseult drinks).
