I took my GF to it last night. It was her birthday and she had the pick of which movie to see. I had not seen any of the trailers for it and was told it was a romance. What I saw was not at all what I expected! Set back when there were Kings and Lords, it kept me entertained through the whole 2 hrs! There were several lesser name actors that I recognized which made it even more appealing. No huge stars overacting! I’ve been told that the movie does not follow the fable exactly, but I had never heard the fable so I can’t verify this. Not an action flick like Gladiator or Troy, but if you like that era this is a movie for you!
A low-budget wonder
O.k., I’m not really familiar with swords-and-sandals movies, but I do read a lot of movie reviews. Based on what I have read, recent movies like Troy and Alexander made the mistake of becoming cocky.
“Mistake” might not actually be the best word, but it applies in their case. They sought to be great films, shooting for the stars. When that happens there can be no middle ground, you fly or you flop, and they flopped. Troy created huge battle scenes filled with men that looked like ants, and Alexander had Colin Ferrel acting like he was the next Gibson and was making the next Braveheart (once again, I’d like to emphasize that these are not my opinions, just second-hand information. For all I know it could all be BS).
Anyway, it’s safe to say that Triston and Isolde does not make these mistakes. Thanks, mainly, to the relatively low budget. I don’t think that anyone involved with this movie thought for a second that they were making Braveheart, and because if it they never became overconfident and got sloppy. Every seen is well shot, directed, and acted. The script is written in a way that makes logical sense, and the editing continues in this tradition.
Probably the biggest advantage this movie has is the time frame. This isn’t a movie about great conquerors. The “kings” in this movie are little more than tribal chieftains fighting over what Rome left behind. The armies they lead are small. The castles are small. The fleets are small. Everything is small. But the story reflects the production. Just because Triston isn’t leading the Greeks against Troy isn’t an excuse for him to fight any less fiercely. The men in this movie fight as valiantly in small skirmishes of a few dozen as the men in more epic movies do in gigantic battles. These men are fighting for their homes and kings, and to them these battles are as great as any others.
Most importantly, this movie has a heart. The characters are not the most complex in history, but they have complexity enough for the story. More importantly, rather than blowing the casting budget on one or two big names, and hiring crappy actors to play everyone else, the director cast relative unknowns with real talent. These actors took their roles, and did their jobs. They did not try to steal the screen, and become the next Gibson. They told the story they were hired to tell, and tried to put as much emotion as possible into their character.
In the end, Tristan and Isolde is a movie that accepts the fact that it will never be a great movie, and settles for being a good movie. It finds middle ground in the movie world, and accomplishes what it sets out to do.
