Christmas 1183: An aging and conniving King Henry II (Peter O'Toole) plans a reunion where he hopes to name his successor. He summons the following people for the holiday: his scheming but imprisoned wife, Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine (Katharine Hepburn); his mistress, Princess Alais (Jane Merrow), whom he wishes to marry; his three sons, Richard (Sir Anthony Hopkins), Geoffrey (John Castle), and John (Nigel Terry), all of whom desire the throne; and the young, but crafty, King Philip of France (Timothy Dalton) (who is also Alais' brother). With the fate of Henry's empire at stake, everybody engages in his or her own brand of deception and treachery to stake his or her claim.

I don't like to review movies. But, after watching this film, I couldn't help myself. The scenes were all very well thought out and the acting was first rate. I was very impressed. I felt like I was part of the film. I would recommend this movie to anyone. It is a must see.

I have been waiting for this film for ages. I had never heard of it before and I knew nothing about it except that it was about the struggle of a girl to get to the American colonies and survive in the wilderness. I read the books, and then finally watched the film. And I was not disappointed. This is not a story of triumph, but of struggle, of hope and survival. The setting, the costumes, the costumes, the costumes. It was all superbly done. The characters were superbly written. The actors were excellent, especially the young men and the older man, played by John Lithgow and Timothy Spall. This film has changed my view on how important it is to get to the American colonies and to learn about the history of the American colonies. It is a very touching story, but it is also a very powerful one, especially because it has been adapted from the book by Jean-Paul Sartre, "L'Homme Du Tout" (the man without shame) and the movie is based on the novel by Jean-Pierre Darroussin. I recommend this film for anyone who wants to understand the history of the American colonies, and how important it was to the development of the United States of America. I would also recommend this film to all the people who read the books, and enjoy them as well. But, of course, this is not a film for everyone, so if you do not like history, or you do not want to understand history, do not see this film. If you like the films that are based on the novels by Jean-Paul Sartre, "L'Homme Du Tout" and "Le Terreur des Etats-Unis" you will probably like this film as well. I hope this review will help you in your decision to see this film.

As with the other reviews here, I found this film to be very moving. I think that the first 20 minutes of the movie were quite interesting. However, the movie never really stays with you and after that, I found myself wishing that it would just end and that I could just go back to my life. The movie was very, very touching. I would recommend this movie to anyone.

Trying to describe this movie to people is difficult because it is so well-written. But for me it was "very good" because it was a true story that has become a popular history of a time and place. It is a great movie for the whole family to watch. It is beautifully shot and the music is very powerful. The actors do a wonderful job and the movie is a great show. It is also a movie that is very moving and touching.

This film is absolutely amazing. I am an American and when I first heard of the story of the French and the Nazi invasion of France I couldn't help but want to see this film. When I heard of the story of the movie it just seemed too real to me. I have never seen a film like this. The actors are great, the story is amazing and I think the story is great too. It doesn't show the Nazis in a negative light. It shows them as people who just want to take the land from the French, and for some of the actors it was really hard to stay in character for such a long time, and the director did a great job of bringing that out. The story was really gripping and I think the director did a great job of keeping my interest and not losing it in the story. The only thing I would change about this film would be that it could have had more action, but I think that is what makes the film so great. All in all I think this is an amazing film. I highly recommend this film and I think it is well worth seeing.

I had the opportunity to see "The Lion in Winter" at a local art house theatre in Vienna, Austria. I was not expecting to enjoy it as much as I did. The cinematography was beautiful. The music was exceptional. The costumes were wonderful and the scenes in the mountains were stunning. The story was told very well and it was amazing to see the white wildebeest on the screen. The movie was about a young boy named Max (Denis Lawson), who wants to be a lion and then he meets an old lion called Siegfried (Djimon Hounsou). Max has a lot of trouble with the lion and the old lion tries to keep him away from the wildebeest. The movie was very emotional and you could feel the love and pain between the two characters. The scene in the old lion's home was very touching. The old lion was a very sweet lion. He had a very caring heart and he would have done anything to protect the wildebeest. The young lion was very aggressive and would have never liked to have his heart broken. The whole movie was very touching and the movie had a lot of emotional and amazing scenes. I strongly recommend that you watch this movie!

I watched this movie in the theatre (Cinemark's version), and I was really surprised by the film's beauty and intensity. The cinematography is absolutely stunning, the costumes are stunning, and the film really draws you into the story. I would love to see more movies from this director, he does an excellent job of portraying a real-life historical person. My only complaint is that the two leads, Billy Crudup and Scarlett Johansson, aren't really my type of people. I'm not a fan of the brash type of Hollywood type, and I'm not into the drama of the romantic hero. But they did a great job with their roles, and I really felt for them. I don't know if it's because I was so young when I saw this, but it made me want to see it again. It was very moving, and I can't recommend it enough.

If you are going to make a movie about the Mongolian people, you must have their civilization, and their history in it. So, make sure to have the history and the culture. The history of the Mongols is as old as the world. A good movie about them would be one that we know, and with enough time to tell you about the history, the culture, and the history of the Mongols. The movie "The Lion in Winter" shows you a little of the Mongolian civilization. I liked the movie, but the movie is not about the Mongolian people. If you don't know what the Mongolians are, I don't recommend watching the movie. If you know what the Mongolians are, then the movie is definitely a good one.

I was curious as to what would happen to the story if it was told today. After watching it I can see that it's true to the original. I don't agree with the fact that the story is not as moving as it could be. However, I feel that if you read the book first then you won't be disappointed. I think the story was a good one and I think that the actors did a great job. I think the movie is about a boy who wants to be a great fighter. He wants to take revenge on the people who killed his father. He wants to be a great leader of his people. The movie shows his downfall, but it doesn't show how he gets over it. If you haven't read the book you may want to read it first. I enjoyed the movie, but I think that the movie could have been better. I think that the movie should have been more of a drama and not so much a drama that it gets boring.

I have never read the book but have seen the movie a few times and I have to say that I am glad that I watched it. I think the movie is brilliant. The actors were brilliant and the actors were really good and the plot was great. I recommend it to anyone who likes historical movies.

First of all, I love seeing a movie from the past, especially a Hollywood movie. This movie is a true gem, made even better by the fact that it is a true love story. I love the fact that this movie tells the story of how a young man from the United Kingdom went to the New World to find his true love, and how he finally finds her. I love the way the movie shows the young man's struggles to get to know his mother and his love for her. And I love the way the movie ends, showing how he is able to find his true love again. I think this movie is wonderful, and I will always love it.

I loved this film. I saw it when it came out and had not seen it since. It was the first film I have seen where I did not see the trailer and I was not disappointed. It was a wonderful film. The acting was phenomenal, the directing was great and the music was wonderful. I really did enjoy this film and I was very impressed. I give this film a 9 out of 10.

This movie was awesome! I really wanted to see it, but I didn't know what to expect, so I decided to wait a few days to see it. I'm glad I did. This movie is amazing. I really love the way the story is told. I can't really find a flaw. The acting was really good, and I really like how they portrayed the different characters. I really love the way they portrayed the different cultures. I really hope that they make a sequel. The story is awesome and really tells a story about what a princess is. I recommend this movie to anyone who loves a good story.

This movie is based on true events and portrays the incredible bravery of the Australian Aborigines in the late 1800s. The movie is based on the book, The Lion in Winter, by W.W. Jacobs. The movie depicts the brutal oppression of the Aborigines by the British government. The movie is very realistic and the acting is amazing. The story is based on the actual events that occurred. The movie is very well made and the movie is very entertaining and makes you feel like you are right there with the Aborigines. I recommend this movie to anyone who has an interest in history or who wants to learn more about the Aborigines. The movie is also good for people who want to learn about the Aborigines. This movie is very well made and the acting is amazing.

I was not expecting much from this movie. I have seen a lot of movies with similar subject matter and like many other people I was expecting a movie that would be more than a 3 hour long TV movie. The movie was so good I had to watch it again and I loved it. The movie was amazing in that it kept you engaged the whole time. It had humor, drama, and action. It was a good movie and I think that you will like it. If you are looking for a movie to watch and you don't have anything to watch this is the movie for you. It is a good movie to watch and will keep you interested the whole time.

A wonderful story of the lives of the soviet prisoners of the gulag, and how they were driven by necessity to fight to survive, even if that meant their deaths. The result is a powerful and moving drama, and one of the best movies I've seen this year. The actors are superb, the story is believable and the characters are believable. It is a film that makes you feel, and has me thinking about it for days afterwards. One of the best movies of the year.

I saw this film for the first time at a screening. My wife and I had been anticipating this movie for a while. We love films that show the historical events that took place and are set in the Middle East. This film is a good representation of the history of the region, as well as the life of a character that lived in the region at that time. The acting is superb, with Jeremy Irons as the title character, who is so strong and powerful. The historical accuracy was also quite good. The historical events are well presented, with no simplifications or slant. This film is certainly worth seeing, and I recommend it to all.

I recently viewed this movie for the first time on DVD. I was not expecting much, but this movie was very good. The story of John Boorman's life was very interesting and entertaining. I did not want it to end, but it did. This movie was very well acted, I found it very believable. The actors did a great job in portraying their characters. I think it was very realistic in that they did not show emotion or show a lot of emotion. It was not "rediculous". I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes history, war, or movies. I think anyone would enjoy this movie. I think it is a must see. This movie is very good and worth seeing.

I have never seen such a good movie, with so many historical facts, that I could not tear my eyes away from the screen. It is a great movie that shows the life of the other European leaders, with a very good story. It was a very emotional movie and I could not stop my tears. It is a movie that should be shown in schools to teach the history of the world, and it is a very good movie. I am very happy that I watched it.

As a history buff, I appreciate the historical importance of this film. The portrayal of the importance of the War of the Roses in England during the 16th century was also interesting. The film was so much better than I expected and I enjoyed it immensely. The story is well-paced, the acting was fine, and the music was appropriate. It was a movie that I enjoyed more than I expected to, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about the events and personalities of the English Civil War. 9/10

A war epic for all ages, the true story of the tragic Polish exodus of Jewish children to the Soviet Union in 1941. We know from the opening of the film that the Poles were responsible for the deportation of the children, but the film is not about the fate of the Jews. It is about the desire for survival of a people who are only human, who believe they have a right to live in a country that is theirs, and they are ready to fight to the end. The children are the children of the Polish people who fled to Russia, they were the children of the Jewish people who fled to the USSR. It is not about the Jews, it is about the people who survived the fate that no child should ever experience. It is about the human spirit that is worth dying for. It is not a war movie, it is about the human spirit. It is a great movie about the human spirit and the human spirit, about survival. We are talking about the values of humanity and survival.

The movie was great. I know what the Academy thinks and I think it's just because I'm a girl. But really, it was great! The fight scenes were great. It was a great story, it was a great movie, and it was the best movie of the year. I thought the actors did a great job with their characters. It was very realistic. I loved it. I highly recommend it. It's a great movie.
