Tristan and Isolde

The tragic non epic

(Edit) 29/01/2007

While this film includes some aesthetic similarities and motifs found in Scott's earlier work, the action to emotion ratio is somewhat imbalanced. An epic narrative unfolds pleasantly if not somewhat predictably. The fast editing technique of the action sequences detracts from the main love story, acted with enthusiasm but with little lasting impression upon the viewer. A repeated refrain is the offered conclusion. Two abigious lovers and a King who is outsmarted and betrayed, if you count a secret tunnel as depth to this common narrative of love betrayed, then you will be happy with the film. Unconvincing and dissapointing.
