A young Tristan sees his parents killed by the tyrannical Irish, who ruled over a fractured Britain after the Roman occupation. Tristan is taken in by Marke, who rules one of the British tribes. Tristan grows up to be a young prince and a mighty warrior. He's believed slain in battle and given a royal funeral on a burning boat set out to sea. But the fire goes out and Tristan washes ashore on Ireland, where Isolde, the daughter of the Irish king, nurses him back to health. The two fall in love and set in motion a tragic tale that's lasted for centuries.

Strong story. Acting well done. Costumes & props realistic. Strong depth of characters. Emotional. Too violent for children to watch.

Great scenery & excellent script,,, Romance, ethnic/tribal wars & lost empires in a legendary Irish & English endless mutual decimation.

Beautifully acted, great scenery and photography. James Franco, an actor I don't like, was great as a tormented Trinstan and Sophia Myles made a beautiful Isolde. (I just can't understand how people who loved this movie could give it just three stars...)

A lot more sword fighting and gore than I expected. At times it was slow going. Otherwise, an enjoyable source of entertainment with gorgeous scenery and a good cast.

Good - Tristan + Isolde (2006) 125 min. starring James Franco (Tristan) and Sophia Myles (Isolde). I was completely surprised at how good this picture actually is. The scenes are filmed beautifully, the acting is first rate and the love story is absolutely touching. Note, among many beaufitul shots, the wedding "march" scene with Isolde on a boat alit with torhces - just beautifully shot. Catch this one on a HD television if you could.
