Quotes

Morgaine: No-one knows the real story of the great King Arthur of Camelot. Most of what you think you know about Camelot, Gwenhwyfar, Lancelot and the evil sorceress known as Morgaine le Fay, is nothing but lies. I should know, for I am Morgaine le Fay, priestess of the Isle of Avalon, where the ancient religion of the Mother Goddess was born.

seductive
6 September 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

it is only a word. defining a state more than the film itself. because the film is more than seductive. not only for the science to propose another side of a well known story. but for the impeccable cast, costumes, atmosphere, for the art to change the perspective about myth and suggest the frame and the traits of a religious conflict. a film about women and hers universe, power and decisions. not only admirable job but great example of inspired way to use a beautiful book for recreate a world of desires, fights and values. a film who change many old pictures about King Arthur legend. in convincing and subtle and admirable manner. like the novel.
