This lushly produced fantasy has gained a loyal following since its release in 1985, and it gave a welcomed boost to the careers of Matthew Broderick, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Rutger Hauer. You have to ignore the overly aggressive music score (critic Pauline Kael aptly dubbed it "disco-medieval") and director Richard Donner's reckless allowance of anachronistic dialogue and uninspired storytelling, but there's a certain charm to the movie's combination of romance and heroism. Broderick plays a young thief who comes to the aid of tragic lovers Isabeau (Pfeiffer), who is cursed to become a hawk every day at sunrise and Navarre (Hauer) who turns into a wolf at sunset. The curse was cast by an evil sorcerer-bishop (John Wood), and as Broderick eludes the bishop's henchmen, Navarre struggles to conquer the villain, lift the curse, and be reunited with his love in human form. The tragedy of this lovers' dilemma keeps the movie going, and Broderick is well cast as a young, medieval variation of Woody Allen. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The video and audio quality of this blu-ray edition are excellent. There are no extras, but for the price the movie itself is WELL worth it.
The price was good at the time I bought it.
I wasn't paying attention to the fact that it was coming from a supplier in Italy, not directly from Amazon.
Surprise surprise, it had a European region code! It would not play on my Samsung home theatre which is locked to North America.
I had to haul out my old LG DVD player that has been hacked to region free. (Thanks, Video Help!)
But that limits me to composite video and analog audio out, rather than full digital HDMI splendor.
I still like the movie but pay attention to the country of origin in these Amazon Marketplace transactions.
Blu-Ray players are very hard to make region free, and had I bought this on BR I would have been out of luck.
I looked everywhere and found this online at Amazon,though secondhand it was sent from a rare DVD/CD shop, it was as described and received in very good time.
An okay soundtrack--sort of out of place, but not completely.

My purchase would have been perfect if I spoke Italian. As I don't it was money poorly spent and once again Amazon will refuse to post my review.Published 4 months ago by Joy

The reproduction is poor and blurry, the picture doesn't fill the screen...not the standard I expect in a Blu-ray product at all.Published 7 months ago by T. Hare
I was not able to view it as it's not compatible with North American machines. It's for Europe.Published 7 months ago by C. Van Bergen
Can only play this on a UK dvd or computer! Absolutely useless to me in Canada. Why would Amazon Canada have it it listed? I will now have to pay shipping to return. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Andrea Routledge
