Ladyhawke is a fantasy film from 1985 directed by Richard Donner.


A thief called "The Mouse" (Matthew Broderick) escapes the dungeons of medieval L'Aquila, setting in motion a chain of events that may save or destroy a beautiful woman and a brave captain. The two lovers are doomed to lifelong separation by a demonic curse invoked by the corrupt and jealous Bishop of Aquila: by day Isabeau (Michelle Pfeiffer) is transformed into a hawk, while at night Navarre (Rutger Hauer) becomes a wolf. Imperius, the monk who betrayed them, has found a way to break the curse, but only if he and the Mouse can get them back into Aquila to face the Bishop.[1]
