A delightful fantasy

  • Mar 9, 2011
This is an adventure story of medieval times, just after a crusade, when pious bishops were political leaders, thought nothing of using black magic, and considered the hanging of a thief the epitome of piety. It is filled with sword fights and love. It concerns a young lying pickpocket, who adds humor to the tale, who escapes the bishop's dungeon and is perused by his armed forces, for "no one can escape my prison." It is about a brooding knight, who is the hero of the film, and his hawk, and a beautiful woman and her wolf. The knight disappears during the night and the woman during the day. It involves an agonizing priest who sinned and is seeking how to repair his offense against God and man.

The boy is found by the bishop's forces and is saved by the knight and his hawk. He joins the knight because he knows how to get into the bishop's walled city and the knight wants to enter it secretly. Later, during the night, the boy is attacked by an avaricious thief with a hatchet and is saved by the wolf who comes with the beautiful lady who disappear. The soldiers tell the bishop that the knight has returned and the bishop is troubled. He is afraid that the knight will kill him, for the knight tells the boy that his quest is to kill the bishop. But there is a problem. The agonizing priest explains that if the knight kills the bishop what he wants to accomplish will fail.

Viewers will enjoy finding out who are these people, what happened to them in the past that made the knight want to kill the bishop, why is the knight brooding, what sin did the priest commit, why is the hawk always with the knight and the wolf always with the woman, how will the film end?
