DescriptionA love story set in the Middle Ages in which spiritual love is pitted against courtly love. Despite all the odds, the beautiful ladies of the medieval court use their wit and intelligence to triumph over the constraining social order to fulfil their own desires. Fine Amour is a sumptuous re-enactment of history from the point of view of those whose lives and experiences have been excluded from it, thus creating an idealised mythic past to be relished and enjoyed.
