It was inspired by Chrétien de Troyes's 12th century Arthurian romance <![CDATA[<i>]]>Perceval, the Story of the Grail<![CDATA[</i>]]>. The film chronicles Perceval's knighthood, maturation and eventual peerage amongst the Knights of the Round Table, and also contains brief episodes from the story of Gawain and the crucifixion of Christ. Unlike other screen adaptations of Arthurian legend, the film makes no attempt at situating the characters in a natural or supernatural world.
