Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - - - - - - - - - - «Arthur is a focal figure in the legends making up the alleged Matter of Britain. The unbelievable Arthur created as a figure of universal intrigue to a great extent through the ubiquity of Geoffrey of Monmouth’s whimsical and innovative twelfth century Historia Regum Britanniae (History of the Kings of Britain). In some Welsh and Breton stories and ballads that date from before this work, Arthur seems either as an incredible warrior protecting Britain from human and powerful adversaries or as an enchanted figure of old stories, now and again connected with the Welsh Otherworld, Annwn. How quite a bit of Geoffrey’s Historia (finished in 1138) was adjusted from such before sources, instead of developed by Geoffrey himself, is unknown. Although the topics, occasions and characters of the Arthurian legend differed generally from content to content, and there is nobody sanctioned variant, Geoffrey’s adaptation of occasions frequently filled in as the beginning stage for later stories. Geoffrey portrayed Arthur as a lord of Britain who crushed the Saxons and built up a realm over Britain, Ireland, Iceland, Norway and Gaul. Numerous components and occurrences that are currently an indispensable piece of the Arthurian story show up in Geoffrey’s Historia, including Arthur’s dad Uther Pendragon, the wizard Merlin, Arthur’s significant other Guinevere, the sword Excalibur, Arthur’s origination at Tintagel, his last fight against Mordred at Camlann, ocean of movies». «Lorsque le roi Arthur livre son dernier combat au coeur de la bataille de Camlann, le royaume sombre dans le chaos. Avant de mourir, le roi charge l’un de ses plus fidèles chevaliers de confier Excalibur, son épée légendaire, à la Dame du Lac. Ses deux fils Mordred et Owain vont s’affronter pour hériter de la couronne. Une lutte impitoyable s’engage entre les deux frères pour récupérer Excalibur, la mythique épée de leur père qui confère des pouvoirs à celui qui la détient».
