10 Best Depictions Of Medieval Europe by Neal Romanek

My picks for the best, most evocative depictions of The European Middle Ages. Some of these might score low on historical accuracy, but perhaps capture an essence of a time and place – an atmosphere – that other more “authentic” films might have missed.

Two films that should be on this list, “The Navigator: A Mediaeval Odyssey” and “The War Lord” (with Charlton Heston), are not available on The Auteurs. “Braveheart” and “The Seventh Seal” have been added in their place.
