      The closest movie to an actual medieval text is Perceval le Gallois, the 1978
      film directed by Eric Rohmer. It's in French, but available on DVD with
      English subtitles. This is Chr├ętien de Troyes' Grail romance, and it's as close to
      a direct translation to the screen as you can imagine. Even the settings of
      the scenes are designed to look like manuscript miniatures, and the music
      sounds medieval. Warning: medieval storytelling can seem so odd to modern audiences
      that more people hate this film than love it, and I've seen it empty a
      theater on a university campus.
