A dramatic update of the Tristan and Isolde legend, scripted by Jean Cocteau, under the watchful eye of Nazi censorship. The legend is beautifully captured by the marvelously photogenic star-crossed lovers, with Tristan modernised by Jean Marais and Isolde by Madeleine Solonge. Set in an ancient castle overlooking the sea, the film has a timeless dreamlike quality which perfectly suits the myth.
