The movie is a good adaptation of the legend told by Joseph bedier in his book. The universal tale of impossible love, the medieval Romeo and Juliet. Not too bad for a TV production, and a bit long because the movie reflects all the books chapters more or less. The battle scenes are quite poor though. The story could become an excellent movie with more ambitious producers. I think that another movie exits about the same legend, but I don't remember exactly the title, maybe Tristano e Isotta in Italian.
On the other hand, is a good way of knowing the hole story if you don't have time to read the novel, but if you can, read it, you'll take more profit.
