This romance is based on the real story of two lovers separated by the Catholic Church but bound by their hearts.Set in Paris during the building of Notre Dame, young Heloise is brought from a convent to live with her uncle, a solicitor for the cathedral building fund. Heloise is well-educated and spirited, a dangerous combination for a woman in this time. She meets Master Abelard, a teacher at the cathedral and they fall in love despite his vow of celibacy.The scandal of their love explodes when Heloise becomes pregnant. The sets and costume are quite convincing--if only the actors sounded more French than English.This is one of my favorite films despite the fact I have a book of some of Abelard's writings in which he displays a near-contempt for Heloise and those around him. A far cry from Derek de Lint's character.
