“You must save this Hawk” he said, “For she is my life, my last and best reason for living.” And then he said, “One day, we will know such happiness as two people dream of, but never do.” Phillipe said.
A fantasy Adventure for the whole family. The soundtrack is very unique for its time. Being in the 80’s, it’s very fun for the time. The composer is Andrew Powell. Would you like an explanation of the plot?
Here is the plot…Upon breaking out of a dungeon, youthful thief Phillipe Gaston (Matthew Broderick) befriends Capt. Navarre (Rutger Hauer), a man with a strange secret. Navarre and his lover Lady Isabeau d’Anjou (Michelle Pfeiffer) were cursed by the wicked Bishop of Aquila (John Wood), who desires Lady Isabeau for himself. His dark magic prevents the pair from ever being in each other’s presence except at twilight, so they enlist Gaston in a dangerous plot to overthrow the Bishop and break his evil enchantment.
The Director was Richard Donner, This is the Third film I’ve reviewed. I love the soundtracks to Richard Donner’s films.

Final Reunion/End Titles
Well that’s all this week! Hope you enjoyed it everyone! Next Week Re-Animator! See you then.
I first saw Ladyhawke in high school, during a unit on medieval literature. I’m not sure how “literary” the film is, but I like it just the same (I’m pretty sure the teacher had a huge crush on Rutger Hauer, and that was our reason for watching it). And, of course, the music is awesome!
