Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
This magnificently photographed French film tells the ancient legend of Tristan and Isolde to the accompaniment of an operatic musical score. Tristan (Yvan Lagrange) is a young warrior who has been sent to Ireland from Cornwall to bring back Isolde (Claire Wauthion), the bride of his king. The two of them drink a love potion, fall in love, and, despite the wrath of their people, persist in their tragic love.
