[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.

Great story, thought provoking
13 January 2006 | by ArizWldcatSee all my reviews

I have to admit that I do not remember much about this story from my college Western Civ class, but I enjoyed this director's work in other films, so I took a chance. What a lovely film! The story is well told, paced well, and full of thought provoking moments. I found the leads, particularly Sophie Myles, who plays Isolde, to be mesmerizing in their roles. The supporting cast is also terrific. I know this won't be for everyone, but it's also not strictly a chick flick. There's plenty of war scenes, adventure, action, etc. to keep those action film fans happy, and yet there's a lot of good love stories, and not just between the two leads as you might expect. I recommend this one!
