Great movie without money
11 June 2003 | by (Brussels, Belgium) – See all my reviews

It's wonderful how Eugene Green is able to give back a medieval atmosphere with no financial means. He uses the "Nouvelle Vague"'s technique of using the word in counterpoint of the image to give such an impression. The universe is completelt realistic and there is quasi no costume, no special effect, but, amazingly, the story tells of two knights who went fought an oger that kidnapped two children in the woods and keeps a young lady emprisonned. I know my pitch is quite confused, but trust me, go see that movie, if it's played in any theater, what is not so sure (I had the opportunity to see it in Cannes, and I really think it deseved the "Caméra d'Or"for this is a firrst movie) I hope it will be distributed soon.
