Perceval

Synopsis

Drawn directly from the twelfth-century verse romance penned by Chrétien de Troyes, this coming-of-age film was shot on a sound stage to convey the artificiality and the charm of the narrative; the sets, costumes, and gestures recall paintings and manuscript illuminations of the medieval period. Fabrice Luchini stars as the title character while Marie-Christine Barrault is Perceval’s lady love. This timeless movie shines like a gem.
