Who would have known that Captain Janeway acted in a movie opposite Richard Burton? This is the one. Another retelling of the classic Tristan and Isolde tale. I find this title a bit more cursory than other versions, in it's treatment of the subject matter. Because of this I would recommend finding an English translation of "Tristan and Isolde" by Gottfried von Strassburg. It's actually a great read in itself. I've been through it many times over the years and enjoyed it much. And this might help clarify some of the rather compressed elements this film tiptoes over. Overall, "Lovespell" is definitely worth a view. The young Kate Mulgrew is effulgently resplendent, as always.

"It was a great present for my Mom, who loved this movie when she was younger! Unfortunately, no subtitles, I wish there were! But still good!"
A charming and subtle film

LoveSpell is a charming and subtle film. The characters are well cast. But I don't think that the movie budget did justice to what the film makers were trying to do. Tristan shows well his emotional torture at seeing the woman he loves married to another man. Isolt is earthy and sweet. Richard Burton as the possessive King Mark is well chosen for his ability to show intensity at his desperate attempts to force Isolt to love him. Burton's portrayal of Mark is similar to his porformance as King Henry VIII in Anne of the thousand days. My favorite elements of the film are the moments of brilliant and beautiful dialogue, the music performed by the Chieftains, and of beautiful Ireland."
