  • One of the absolute best. You can almost feel the mud and taste the wind. The movie always conveyed me a sense of magic like a fairytale. I wonder if that was Mel’s and John’s intention.

    Frame no. 371 is very similar to one shot fromThe Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, where Aragorn kisses Arwen in the moonlight.
