Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The War Lord

THE WAR LORD is an accurate account of life during the 11th century. THE WAR LORD really should be called 'THE LOVERS' after the play it is based on. I hope that first time viewers of this film can get past the lavish battles scenes and focus on the real storyline in this movie, the tortured love between two people.

The review of this Movie prepared by MonaK

A Norman knight returns home from the Crusades to claim his father's land. He falls in love with a peasant girl and claims her on her wedding night, then keeps her. This leads to nothing good. Based on a play called "The Lovers," there are issues of love, loyalty, duty, and revenge. Maybe the best movie of the middle ages ever made. Certainly the most accurate production.
