Summary from IMDB:

Jean de Carrouges is a respected knight known for his bravery and skill on the battlefield. Jacques Le Gris is a squire whose intelligence and eloquence makes him one of the most admired nobles in court. When Le Gris viciously assaults Carrouges' wife, she steps forward to accuse her attacker, an act of bravery and defiance that puts her life in jeopardy. The ensuing trial by combat, a grueling duel to the death, places the fate of all three in God's hands.

I've read the book and now watched the movie and I have to admit, I wasn't sure how they were going to work out the three different points of view since the real story isn't completely clear as to what happened. The way the director retold the story three times, but made each retelling so different, but absolutely the same story, it was refreshing.

If you don't know the story, it would take me days to try and recap it, so you are just going to have to either read the book or watch the movie. Heck, do both, but whatever you do, don't miss this bit of history.
