Oh I LOVE Braveheart!

Try Kingdom of Heaven. It's quite a religious movie, but you don't have to be very religious to enjoy it.

I would also recommend:

The Colt - It's set during *I think* the American Civil War?

The Fawn - I have no idea where it's set, but it's quite old.

Invictus - A South African movie set pre 1994.

That's all I can think of right now. :)

While it doesn't take place in "old" times, A Painted House is beautiful movie that I adore.

well not any. Have you seen the newest "3 musketeers" movie? Blasphemy!

There are So many good movies that take place in a different time. Do you want historical? Or [medieval] "fantasy" type?

I like "Newsies" which is a disney musical, but it takes place turn of the century and has lots of horses and horse drawn carriages. <- which I'm in love with! - based on real events.
(it's the most recent dvd I dug out of my collection and watched.) ;)
