surprisingly effective treatment
15 August 1999 | by (Oregon) – See all my reviews

It's not easy to make the Dark Ages interesting, but "Charlemagne" just about pulls it off. I'll have to re-read my Einhard for the details, but for the most part they seem to have got the story right, although of course, I don't think we know as much about Charles's personal life as this film might lead one to believe.

That quibble aside, the production values are quite high (resisting, for the most part, the temptations of excess prettiness), the pacing good, and the international cast handles their roles competently.

A good introduction to a truly astonishing historical figure.
