Synopsis

From executive producer Ridley Scott (Gladiator) comes a sweeping, action-packed saga of epic battles, political intrigue and forbidden passion, set in a time when the lines between heroism and savagery were etched in fire and carved out with broadswords. After the fall of Rome, visionary warlord Marke (Rufus Sewell) seeks to unite the squabbling English tribes to form one strong nationand defeat brutal Irish King Donnchadh. But when Lord Marke's greatest and most loyal knight, Tristan (James Franco), falls in love with Isolde (Sophia Myles), a beautiful Irish woman, it threatens to destroy the fragile truce and ignite a war. In the spirit of Braveheart and A Knight's Tale, TRISTAN+ ISOLDE is a rousing tale of trust and treachery that will leave you breathless!

Reviews

Andrea Gronvall Chicago Reader | December 18, 2006

Strikes a good balance between action and romance in this version of the medieval legend.

Lisa Schwarzbaum Entertainment Weekly | January 18, 2006

A serious, old-fashioned, history-heavy romance.

Peter L'Official Village Voice | January 17, 2006

I dub thee tolerable.

James Berardinelli ReelViews | January 14, 2006

I can wholeheartedly recommend Tristan & Isolde, even to those who don't have a penchant for period piece romances. The movie has a lot to offer.

Joe Leydon Variety | January 13, 2006

A handsomely produced and sporadically rousing re-retelling of the ancient Celtic legend about star-crossed lovers.

Moira MacDonald Seattle Times | January 13, 2006

While Tristan & Isolde, a competent but uninspired film version of the legendary medieval romance, will likely fade from theaters and memories quickly, Myles' lovely face and spirited performance should linger.
