Masterpiece, all of man, pride and love is here. God as the force that pushes men and women to kneel to one another, to love each other in a world where only war and destruction seemed possible. "The Crusades" disregards real History to give matter to a parable of such beauty and moral strength that one can only wish that History had happened this way. One of the great works of art... of all time.
Watching "The Crusades" I alternate between cringing at the glaring ignorance and disregard of history and the ridiculous activities proceeding on screen and being amazed at the grandeur of the spectacle and some of the masterfully composed shots.
