Sword Of The Valiant: The Legend Of Sir Gawain And The Green Knight

Synopsis: Gawain was a squire in King Arthur's court when the Green Knight burst in and offered to play a game with a brave knight. No knights stand to defend their king's honor. Except for the valiant Gawain. After being quickly knighted Gawain plays the game, but learns that it's all a trick, and he has lost. But the Green Knight shows mercy, letting Gawain grow a year older before having to face the consequences. Gawain journeys across the land, learning about life, saving damsels, and solving the Green Knight's riddle.

Let the game begin.


Come to me, my body.

These young eyes have seen

nothing of the world yet.

Shall I snuff out their light?

Shall these young lips grow cold

before they have tasted life...

or touched a woman's cheek?

No, Gawain.

You shall not die yet

to defend their lack of courage.

I came to challenge a man,

not a beardless boy.

I give you a year's grace

to grow your beard.

Twelve sweet, short months

of life to do with as you will.

But when the seasons

have come full circle...

we shall meet again, and

you shall pay your debt to me.

Is there no hope for me

beyond this?

Must I spend the year

awaiting death at your hand?

Only fools and priests

do squander life...

with thoughts of death.

So you would hope to cheat

your fate, Gawain, hmm?

Well, every man hopes that.

Especially the young.

I'll give you a riddle.

Mark it well, for if

by the time we meet again...

you have fully understood

every line...

your life

will be restored to you.

It has, uh, four lines.

Mark them all well.

Where life is emptiness,


Where life is darkness, fire.

Where life is golden, sorrow.

Where life is lost, wisdom.

But how do I know

where to find you?

Never fear, Sir Gawain.

If you do not find me,

I will most assuredly find you.

Sir Gawain. My helmet.

You have restored honor

to this court.

May others take heart

from your example.

And may my own armor...

and the Lord,

protect you on your quest.

Let the feast begin!

I don't think I'm hungry.

Take your last look, Humphrey.

Now, there's just one thing

they forgot to tell me...

in my swift initiation

into knighthood.

Oh, yes?

How the hell do I relieve

myself in this tin suit?

What no lost knight

should be without.

Oh, you don't know

how happy I am to see that.

Anyway, which way do we go?
