On the run from a villainous bishop (John Wood), Philippe Gaston (Matthew Broderick), 
a medieval thief also known as the Mouse, 
befriends the gallant Captain Navarre (Rutger Hauer), 
who's been the bishop's target ever since he rescued Lady Isabeau (Michelle Pfeiffer). 
Philippe soon learns that Navarre and Isabeau are victims of a curse that will keep them apart forever -- unless he can help break the spell and reunite the lovers.

this movie was made in 1985 and was one of the first for 
michelle pfeiffer.

she was beautiful in it and matthew broderick was so young and really funny...
  by day isabeau is transformed into a hawk, 
while at night navarre becomes a wolf.
neither has any memory of their half-life in animal form; 
only at dusk and dawn of each day can they see each other in human form for one fleeting moment, 
but can never touch...
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.
in despair 
navarre plans to kill the bishop or die in the attempt, making the curse irrevocable. 
but imperius has discovered a way to break the curse; 
in three days, a solar eclipse will create 
"a day without a night and a night without a day": 
when the lovers stand together in human form before the bishop, the curse will be broken.

so good...
