With all of the remakes, reboots and absurd game & comic adaptions spewing forth from Hollywood lately, Black Death shows a story with some original thought to it. Set in the plague year of 1348, the film is a tale of fundamentalist Christianity, fearful superstition and atavistic paganism.
Ulric (Sean Bean) heads up a group of knights and journeys into the marshes lead by a young monk - Osmund - to discover why one village doesn’t seem to be affected by the wretched disease. What they find is a necromancer called Langvia; but when she reveals her true nature and offers Osmund his heart’s desire, he must choose between the love of his God and the woman he loves.
