[-[[caption-width-right:232:[[Myth/ArthurianLegend Arthurian]] LoveTriangle : The Poster.]]-]

A 1995 film that reinterprets Arthurian legend, directed by [[{{Film/Ghost}} Jerry Zucker]]. The soundtrack is by Music/JerryGoldsmith.

KingArthur (Creator/SeanConnery) has spent his entire life bringing justice to the land and wants more than anything else to marry Guinevere and enjoy a peaceful retirement. Despite genuinely caring for him, Guinevere (Julia Ormond) feels it to be her duty to marry him, and its clear that she has a problem with letting obligation make her decisions for her, instead of her heart. Lancelot (Creator/RichardGere) is a wandering swordsman, making as few ties as possible because his family and village were destroyed in the wars. When these three collide, will they save Camelot from its latest threat or doom it?

* BowAndSwordInAccord: Several of Malagant's men carry hand crossbows that they fire before charging. They hit and kill someone with every shot, too; after a while you wonder why they use swords at all. Maybe they're hard to reload.

**Camelot itself could count. In many versions of the Arthurian legend, the kingdom falls into ruins as result of the affair. This film implies that Camelot will continue to thrive under Guinevere and Lancelot's rule.

* HonorBeforeReason: After catching Lancelot and Guinevere in an embrace, Arthur bluntly declares, "As a man, I may forgive. As a king. . .", then declares that two will be tried for treason, in public, lest the people think that he is showing favoritism or leniency that he would never have extended to anyone else, though one can't help but wonder if he also wants to publicly humiliate them for their betrayal.

* CharacterDevelopment: Lancelot, as cited below. Goes from being a devil-may-care drifter to someone willing to give up the woman he loves rather than destroy her marriage in order to have her, then willing to give his life for her several times (rescuing her from kidnappers, taking the full blame for their betrayal of Arthur)

** Averted with Lancelot, who was the most famous example of chivalry in European literature, but in the film is depicted as a wandering warrior without armor or any majestic purpose in life.
