The centre-piece of a love triangle between Alfred Molina’s Maxim Horvath and Nicholas Cage‘s Balthazar Blake, she is more than a match for either with her beauty, grace and monstrous power.
“Balthazar and Veronica are willing to do everything for their love,” says Bellucci, “and at the same time they’re two fighters. Horvath, who, like them, was a disciple of Merlin, also falls in love with Veronica. She rejects him for Balthazar, and because of that he betrays them by aligning himself with Morgana. It’s a beautiful and powerful story about love, jealousy and vengeance.”
