Early in the movie, Folcanet challenges Hode to appear before Daguerre "at seven in the morning". Before the invention of mechanical clocks to have more accurate and evenly divided hours, daytime and nighttime (irrespective of the season) were divided in twelve parts called hours.

I grew up with these old classics, when we sort of had to picture the story in our minds as we read it. This is by far the most authentic version of a Robin Hood tale I've seen. No special-effects, no magic, just real life in the woods of medieval England. The characters are believable and the casting was spot-on. The timing of the release was unfortunate due to the publicity being generated for Costner's version (which I won't even waste my time reviewing), but if you're looking for a real genuine and human rendition of this timeless classic, set a few hours aside to watch Umma Thurman set the eternal bar for Maid Marianne. Better set a few more hours aside... you might want to watch it twice!!
