Storyline

Bradamante, a woman wearing an invincible suit of armor, is travelling the countryside at the time of the Crusades. After ending up in the middle of a web of romantic and cultural tangles, she finds herself in love with a Moor prince, while one of the Christian knights has fallen in love with a Moor princess. Others, however, are against the cross-cultural romance, and Bradamante's love is soon forced into a duel to the death. Will she ever be with her true love?

Negotiate for I Paladini
15 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

I don't see what else we could do about this movie except to negotiate. But first I must mark out that its a damn good movie, maybe the best paragon for "knight movies" from the 20th century and much better than the contemporary movies of crusades and chivalry - so to say, exploited themes from novels of Sir Walter Scot, King Arthur and Robin Hood mythology, etc. The parsimony and envy for those long gone times precludes further talking.

I watched this movie recently on a badly shaped VHS rip-off and understand that there is no DVD or Blue-ray release yet. This is no good because the movie was highly popular in the 1980s and owned it in perfect VHS quality made from a laser disk matrix. The colors were brighter, the original soundtrack was in English and not in displaced Italian; and it is hard to believe that a mini-series version existed as someone mentioned that Leonard Maltin had said. This could be easily verified if you ask the actors Ronn Moss and Rick Edwards, who are really stars from popular TV serials.

The next thing to negotiate is the costume design. At my times in the 1980s this was the most fashionable action movie I have watched which coupled with the electronic music score made an unforgettable impression. I was impressed by the special forms of the knights helmets, each depicting a different symbols, and the masks of the mercenaries which were supposed to be Moors. If all those credits are attributed to Nanà Cecchi and not to Giorgio Armani this would be a pity failure.

Anyway the whole blot about this movie continues. Actors and producers may be forgotten but the battle between Warner Bros. and other distributing bodies still persist. Thank you!
