Krull (1983) Poster


Alun Armstrong: Torquil



  • Prince Colwyn : The reward is freedom... and fame!

    Torquil : Freedom? We have it! And fame? Nah. It's an empty purse. Count it, go broke. Eat it, go hungry. Seek it, go mad!

  • Seer : The temple is at the center of the swamp where three trees grow as one.

    Prince Colwyn : How can anything grow in that place? It smells of death.

    Ynyr : Death and power are close cousins.

    Torquil : I don't think I like your relatives, old man.

  • [Ynyr leaves to go see The Widow of the Web] 

    Ynyr : From here, I go on alone.

    Prince Colwyn : I'm going with you.

    Ynyr : No. If two approach, she would certainly kill both. Alone, I may have a chance.

    Torquil : Each to his fate, Colwyn.

    Ynyr : Yes... Yes, each to his fate.

  • Torquil : [Colwyn gives the king's key to Torquil to rid himself of his manacles]  I thought I might keep them as a momento of our journey.

    Prince Colwyn : Well, the key is yours.

    Torquil : Only the king and his Lord Marshall carry this key!

    Prince Colwyn : Right.

    [Torquil laughs realizing he's just been appointed Lord Marshall] 

  • Torquil : I don't kill men without good reason.

    Prince Colwyn : Nor do I. And be thankful for it.

  • Torquil : Silence! You're surrounded by a hundred men.

    Prince Colwyn : A hundred is not enough.

    Torquil : Well what have we here? A fighter?

    Prince Colwyn : Besides you're short by about ninety men.

  • Prince Colwyn : Would you follow a king to the black fortress?

    Torquil : Now I know you're a lunatic. I wouldn't follow me own father to the black fortress.

  • Prince Colwyn : Now we have no way to find the fortress.

    Ynyr : There is one who might help.

    Prince Colwyn : Who?

    Ynyr : The Widow of the Web.

    Torquil : That creature helps no one. For none who go there return.

    Ynyr : She has great powers.

    Torquil : Yeah, to kill.

    Ynyr : She may not kill me. For I know her name.

    Torquil : Her name is death.

    Ynyr : She had another name once. An ancient and powerful name.

    [Torquil has a look of disbelief and this gets Ynyr mad] 

    Ynyr : We all risk our lives on this journey. My risk is no greater than yours. I must try.

  • Torquil : [about the journey and Colwyn's offer to unlock the manacles]  If we succeed, unlock them. Otherwise I'll die with them on.

  • Torquil : Only the king and his lord marshall have the keys to these manicles. You don't look like the lord marshall.

    Prince Colwyn : No.

    Torquil : You look about the right age to be Turold's son.

    Prince Colwyn : Exact age.

  • Prince Colwyn : [looking at Torquil and his men]  You're escaped prisoners

    Torquil : Every one of us. Thieves, fighters, bandits and brawlers!
