Is the writer was aware of the real story?

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Everyone who has read the complete modern version of Tristan et Iseult wrote by René Louis from ancient french to modern french can approve this comment : this movie is completely out of the track!

Lots of important scenes are missing, lots of scenes are false, and much more : the end is not the real one! In this movie, the king Mark resign and let Tristan access the throne and marry Iseult. In the real story, Iseult has been married to Mark for years before Tristan died from a poison in Bretagne, then Iseult commit suicide when she learns that Tristan is dead before she came to treat him.

Then, there is the most stupid, the most annoying character ever created : Puck. A so-called leprechaun (which looks like more a kind of raccoon than a leprechaun) who is the narrator and who helps (or do anything instead of) Tristan.

Then there is many script errors, like this one : Tristan defeat the Morholt (which in the real story he has beheaded him) and let him leave alive. Then, when Tristan first meets Iseult in Ireland, she tells him that her uncle, the Morholt, is dead, killed by an unknown champion. How could he be killed if Tristan let him leave alive? My theory : he committed suicide, ashamed.

Tristan is not a good warrior in this movie... every fight he does, or he wins by luck, or the opponents is killed by something else. Like the dragon. When Tristan "fought" the dragon, the dragon was firing everywhere, and then a big rock felt from the top and pushed the dragon right into the lava, which killed the dragon. At this moment, Tristan was running away.

And i'll not talk about the so-called 3D animations of the movie...

This is probably the worst movie about the legendary Tristan and Iseult, and probably on of the worst movies i've even seen. 86 minutes of crap.

I have watched this movie 3 times in 2 days because it is my FAVORITE movie and I have written 2 alternate endings. I won't write them down because they are pretty long. I am going to buy this movie tonight because I am going to a soccer game. I loved this movie because, it is sort of like me, I can't be with the guy that I like. I love this movie a lot and I will now write some things down that I like about the movie. I loved the poem that Isolde told Tristan. I actually felt his heart break when he couldn't be with Isolde. He was starving himself because he was getting sick because of watching Marke loving her. I thought that they could have had introduced the characters more differently though because you started wondering who was who. BUT that does not change my opinion of the movie.
