- Synopsis / Plot
- A haunting adventure fantasy about a pair of cursed lovers who are transformed into animal shapes during alternate periods of the day. It all begins when the thief Philippe Gaston (Matthew Broderick) makes a remarkable escape from the dungeons of Aquila. He is rescued from pursuing soldiers by the sombre knight Etienne Navarre who takes him on as equerry. In his travels with Navarre (Rutger Hauer), Philippe puzzles over the beautiful woman and the wolf that join them nightly. Slowly he pieces together the mystery surrounding Navarre. Navarre and the woman Isabeau Anjou (Michelle Pfeiffer) were once lovers. However, the Bishop of Aquila desired Isabelle and placed a curse on them that made Navarre turn into a wolf by night and she a hawk by day. Now they are only ever able to touch for a single moment at sunrise and sunset.
