William the Conqueror 2015
Guillaume, la jeunesse du conquérant (original title)
1h 30min | Drama | 31 May 2017 (France)
In the year of 1066AC, William the Conqueror is about to embark from Dives-sur-Mer to conquer England. In the event that he would not return alive, Guillaume introduced his son Robert to his loyal barons to receive the ducal throne heritage.
The DVD calls itself ‘William the Conqueror’, not signalling that it is in French, and entirely set before William set sail.
Seeing the Conquer as a child and young man fighting for survival however quite interesting.
The battle scenes were realistic, though it was often unclear which side anyone was on.
Worth it for serious viewers.
