THE FILM OF THE DAY

Second installment of the fantasy saga of Lord of the Rings, “The Two Towers” ends with one of the most impressive battles ever filmed: that of Helm’s Deep. The culmination of the feature film, this battle required no less than four months of filming, three of which took place at night, in torrential rain and freezing cold. Terrible conditions for the actors, who did not all come out unscathed (Viggo Mortensen broke a tooth, while Orlando Bloom broke a rib while falling from his horse). Spanning more than 40 minutes, this masterful battle will nevertheless mark the history of cinema … and TV series, since the Battle of Winterfell in Game Of Thrones (season 8, episode 3) is directly inspired by it …
