Storyline

Bradamante, a woman wearing an invincible suit of armor, is travelling the countryside at the time of the Crusades. After ending up in the middle of a web of romantic and cultural tangles, she finds herself in love with a Moor prince, while one of the Christian knights has fallen in love with a Moor princess. Others, however, are against the cross-cultural romance, and Bradamante's love is soon forced into a duel to the death. Will she ever be with her true love? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

I really like this movie
6 November 2006 | by saksdSee all my reviews

Yes it is low budget but the music is enchanting and the costumes are excellent. The storyline was hard to follow the first time i watched it but since i like the movie so much I didn't mind watching it over and over to figure out all the stuff going on in it. I think Rugerro is so handsome and the scenery is really quite perfect for the storyline. By far though the music really made the movie for me. I have been looking for this movie to add to my collection and am glad to have found it again. I can highly recommend this film to those of you that like the knights and damsels in distress genre. It has been said to be a poor imitation of Excaliber but I think in many ways it is its equal. Yes the acting is a bit lacking in places but what is good in the film more than makes up for that little flaw.
