Following the release of his 1984 debut feature Vigil, Vincent Ward returned four years later with The Navigator: A Medieval Odyssey, a film that would cement his position as one of the most exciting filmmaking talents to emerge during the eighties.

Cumbria, 1348 the year of the Black Death. Griffin, a young boy, is plagued by apocalyptic visions which he believes could save his village. Encouraging a small band of men to tunnel into the earth, they surface in 1980s New Zealand and a future beyond their comprehension but must complete their quest.

Nominated for the Palme d Or at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival, The Navigator: A Medieval Odyssey is a bold and often startling fusion of medieval fantasy and time travel science fiction, quite unlike anything you ve seen.

Not sure about this....

A very incoherent peice of work mixing religion with the black death tunnel digging and some time travel to boot, something like my first sentence!. I went into the movie with open arms and came out with a sense of what did I just watch?. The opening scenes and the overall sence of dread in the village remind me of a reenactment of a viking village, so done well. The rest is best to see for yourself. My favourite part was the "crossing the road " scene. Enjoy
