2 hr. 20 min.
After having lost two sons in battle and a husband to grief, Perceval's (Fabrice Luchini) mother does her best to isolate her son from even the idea of chivalry and knighthood. But the young boy reads about knights and their exploits, and cannot help but commit to becoming one. His extreme naiveté and innocence work again and again to his advantage, eventually vouchsafing him both a glimpse of the Holy Grail and a meeting with King Arthur (Marc Eyraud) and the Knights of the Round Table.
