Loosely based on Don Quixote, Albert Serra’s quietly compelling picture takes its time in examining the relationship at the centre of Cervantes' novel. Sancho and Quixote are presented in a series of long takes and patiently paced shots, which records their day-to-day activities. Shot in natural light, on a small budget and with local amateurs playing the two leads, this film echoes cinema's patient greats, namely Bresson and Ozu. Honour of the Knights is a beautifully weighted tale of friendship, love, faith and death.
