Storyline

18-year old David grew up assuming that his mother and his father have died when he was a baby. He was raised by a monk and is close to completing High School. He gets into a fight during a party and discovers he is stronger than he thought he was- also, the blooding of an injury stops immediately and the wound heals within an hour. All of a sudden, the Priory of Sion and the Knights Templar show interest in the boy and the quest for the Holy Grail begins once again, with David being the one who can lead them to it.

Lovely history/fantasy/romance/action movie
11 December 2004 | by akmarzikSee all my reviews

I really liked this movie very much. It tells a moving story in a quite straightforward way. The viewers are immediately drawn to identify with the main character David, an orphan who gradually discovers his roots and with them a feud of several centuries' duration that he suddenly finds himself involved in.

The acting was quite good, especially the young couple (I already liked Alicja Bachleda-Curus in "Sommersturm"). And there are some very nice swordfighting scenes between the two rivalling orders.

Some characters were too transparent from the beginning (I knew the villain after five minutes) and they seem to have borrowed some traits from other movies (X-men, Indiana Jones), but hey! this is a young director. And he took on quite a big issue: some of the great relics of Christianity (the Holy Grail etc.), the Order of the Temple, ancient rivalry, two love stories....(no wonder there are a few loose ends).

All in all, it's really worth watching. I enjoyed it immensely!
