Tristan + Isolde

Tristan + Isolde (3/5) is a romantic tragedy. The time is after Romans, provinces of England are divided and regularly looted by Ireland. In one of the Irish attacks, Tristan is wounded, presumed dead and set afloat on a funeral boat. Isolde, daughter of the Ireland king finds him washed up, tends to him and they fall in love. Tristan returns back, only to come back to Ireland to fight for Isolde in a competition. He wins, but sadly Isolde has to marry his king Marke. Their love continues secretly, but is revealed to the world by the Ireland king which tears apart the united English kings. Tristan dies in battle.

The story is good, the filming is good. The length and pace of the movie works against it, making it boring.
