Ladyhawke

Broderick plays a Dark Ages version of the Artful Dodger, befriending the traumatised but bold Etienne of Navarre (camp Hauer), who is eternally separated from his true love Isabeau (decorative Pfeiffer) by a horrible, nasty spell that only outrageous bravery and special effects can undo. All rather facile sword-and-sorcery stuff, of course, but at times very funny (special mention to McKern as a bumbling priest) and always beautifully photographed in the Italian Dolomites.
