The Eagle Huntress

Just managed to catch the last showing of this wonderful film, at the Watershed (Bristol).  The cinema was almost full for an 11.30 am showing.  The film is clearly a re-creation, to some extent and there are occasionally some stagey touches, but although the simple story shows some signs of being over dramatised this pales in the light of fabulous scenery, brilliant camera work and sheer joyfulness.  The exotic locations, tremendous action and fascinating subject matter bring a rare peek into other lives.
