Goofs

In one of the scenes, Isolde is seen riding with stirrups. Stirrups were not brought to Europe until 600 AD through the Asiatic Avars. They were not commonly used throughout Western Europe until the 9th century. It would be extremely unlikely that an Irish Princess would have stirrups. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Title Card: Britain. The Dark Ages. / The Roman Empire has fallen / The land lies in ruins, divided among feuding tribes. / To the west, Ireland has flourished - untouched by the Romans, protected by the sea. / Led by their powerful and righteous king, the Irish have subdued the Britons... / Knowing that if Ireland is to prosper, the tribes must never be allowed to unite.

Loved It!
15 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I took my GF to it last night. It was her birthday and she had the pick of which movie to see. I had not seen any of the trailers for it and was told it was a romance. What I saw was not at all what I expected! Set back when there were Kings and Lords, it kept me entertained through the whole 2 hrs! There were several lesser name actors that I recognized which made it even more appealing. No huge stars overacting! I've been told that the movie does not follow the fable exactly, but I had never heard the fable so I can't verify this. Not an action flick like Gladiator or Troy, but if you like that era this is a movie for you!
