Cast: Matthew Broderick, Rutger Hauer, Michelle Pfeiffer,
Plot: When the beautiful maiden Isabeau rejects the evil
Bishop Imperious for the soldier Etienne, Imperious places a
magic spell on the lovers: Isabeau is condemned forever to live
as a hawk by day and as a woman by night, while Etienne is a
man by day and a wolf at night. Even though the two are constant
companions, they can catch only fleeting glimpses of each other's
human forms at sunset and sunrise. When a petty thief befriends
the unfortunate pair, he and a sympathetic priest devise a plan
that will at last free Etienne and Isabeau from their curse.
