Kaamelott delves into what’s hidden behind the bright Legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table through a twisted modern angle.
Kaamelott delves into what’s hidden behind the bright Legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table: the comic motivation for the series relies on the opposition between the grandeur of the Arthurian legend and its hypothetical mediocrity in truth. In other words, the humoristic interpretation of the legend makes viewers dive into reality behind the myth.
While the series takes place in the 5th century, it uses our modern language and situations to create a distortion between the supposedly noble and epic myth and our 21st century preoccupations and lifestyle. In a nutshell, Kaamelott looks at History through a twisted modern angle, following the legacy of the Monty Python’s offbeat tone.
