The chorus especially is what makes this so good.
4 February 2004 | by choochoo2112See all my reviews

Saw this in a college literature class and just saw it for the second time in about ten years. Excellent film,good story and outstanding work on the part of the chorus. Look for the actor who played the Grail guardian in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,without the head covering and makeup,of course. His voice should give him away. Always nice to see a classic story adapted to modern film. The chorus especially is what makes this so good.
