Movie Info

Though the story told in Robin and Marian is unfamiliar to most audiences, it is actually quite faithful to several of the ancient Robin Hood legends. During the Crusades, Robin (Sean Connery) is still loyal to King Richard the Lionheart (Richard Harris), but even he has trouble adjusting to the monarch's ever-increasing paranoia and lunacy. After Richard's death, Robin returns to England, his first visit to his home turf in 20 years. He looks up his beloved Maid Marian (Audrey Hepburn, last

Robin and Marian is a film that must stand or fall on the strength of its stars. Fortunately, it has two of the best."

The idea of picking up the Robin Hood legend 20 years later seems okay at first consideration, but Goldman and Lester never got beyond the premise.

The social satire gets precious at times, but Connery (sans hairpiece!) and Hepburn (swathed for the first hour in a nun's wimple) bring a fervid depth of feeling to their characters' rekindled courtship.

It's one of those rare movies, like King Hu's Touch of Zen, that handles its historical imagery so cleanly, and contains its pretensions so solidly within sure characterisation and plotting, that it is often sublimely expressive.

Connery and Hepburn seem to have arrived at a tacit understanding between themselves about their characters. They glow. They really do seem in love. And they project as marvelously complex, fond, tender people.

The atmosphere is one of melancholy as Lester penetrates through the gauze of fantasy to find the human heart, and softly finds it beating.

A Richard Lester film starring Sean Connery and Audrey Hepburn has got to worth two hours of anybody's cinema-going time.

[A] gorgeous, masterly elegy for a vanished age.

A spotty picture that's sometimes satirical, a trifle pretentious, occasionally exciting.

Overcomes its mediocre script by Lester's excellent visualizations, the pleasing performances from Connery and Hepburn, and the broad comedy that underscores this tragic story.

Possibly the most telling tale of Robin Hood ever made.

If nothing else, the performances of Connery and Hepburn are welcome delights.

Audience Reviews for Robin and Marian

Maybe I need to see this one again, but all I remember is that Robin Hood was older and there wasn't much going on, and it was boring, but I 'll give it another try someday.

The quite fine adventure film is full of heroes that are larger than life, villians who are more than evil, one of the greatest love stories ever told and one of the greatest adventures of all time. Believe me, this story is kind of funny between Robin and Marion in their old times when they grow older.

Very likeable and funny deconstruction of the Robin Hood myth from the director who brought you a very likeable and funny deconstruction of The Three Musketeers. Obviously influenced the hugely inferior Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves.

Movies Like Robin and Marian

    1. Maid Marian: I love you. More than all you know. I love you more than children. More than fields I've planted with my hands. I love you more than morning prayers or peace or food to eat. I love you more than sunlight, more than flesh or joy, or one more day. I love you...more than God.
