Storyline

Once upon a time a god gave a mighty sword to the king of Aquiles to bring justice to his people. Now he wants it back - but the king rather gives his life than the sword. Goddess Dehamira, who spoke for him, is being taken all her privileges and banned in a circle of fire, until a human arrives who's strong enough to free her. When prince Ator becomes 18, he gets the sword from the mean sorcerer gnome Grindl, to free Dehamira and his people. On his journey he has to fight against dragons and other fantastic figures. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Nothing to do with first 2 ATORS quite atmospheric fantasy.
3 January 2009 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

I do not agree with the previous comment. Last year we managed to find that rare late Damato exclusive. I loved the story it makes sense. The classic Film Mirage production. Looks pretty awesome, at least comparing with Ator 2, that I think really boring, comparing to this title. Yes I was actually surprised to read first that this one is not worth seeing, and then it turned out to be quite imaginative and magic fairytale that gives both wonders ,creeps and belief in real heroes who exist here. Lamberto Bava's Fantaghiro series are good connection to this wave of Italian look on myths and fairy tales. www.myspace.com/neizvest
