Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)

Director: Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones
Cast: Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Eric Idle
Genre: Comedy

Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)Plot: A low budget parody on the classic "The Excalibur (1981)". King Arthur is out in the search of his brave knights of the round-table. Once together, they are all assigned a mission to find the coveted Holy Grail.

A laugh riot! It features some satire over the then feudal system with a few scenes showing a comic representation of Swedish classic "The Seventh Seal (1957)".

One might enjoy it even without viewing the above mentioned movies. Though some scenes like—Knight guarding the bridge crossing— are best enjoyed with some background knowledge.


Watch out for the King Arthur's ride! It's plain hilarious.

Opening credits are funny and unique. And the "French insulting the British" scenes are ultimate. Dialogues are witty, as can be, and hardly use any cussing, which is remarkable!

Grab it now!

7.8/10
