Long ago, probably in the 90s, I watched (I think) one of the Highlander movies with Christopher Lambert. A big part of the movie was him waiting to be executed via guillotine. He spent almost every moment watching that guillotine from the little window of his cell.

I remember Lambert’s face with his long hair watching from that little window, but I can’t find to which Highlander movie it belongs.

  • I remember Christopher Lambert
  • For some reason I think it’s from some Highlander movie

Does this sound familiar to anyone?

This is Highlander III: The Sorcerer (1994), also known as Highlander: The Final Dimension.

Deceived that he had won the Prize, Connor MacLeod awakens from a peaceful life when an entombed immortal magician comes seeking the Highlander.

There's a scene about an hour into the film where Connor MacLeod is being held in a prison cell in 18th century France and awaiting execution by guillotine, having been accused of treason against King Louis XVI.

Fortunately for Connor, an Immortal friend of his, Pierre Bouchet, bribes one of the guards to let him into the prison cell and volunteers to take his place, stating that he's tired of eternal life and that, if Connor dies, a great warrior against evil will be lost. Connor tells him to go home and sleep it off, but Pierre knocks him out with a blow to the back of the head and willingly leaves with the guards to be executed in his stead.

Connor is repeatedly shown looking out of the window of the prison cell during this scene.
