Recommendable fun with the adventures of Floris and Sindala.
28 May 2000 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

One of the first Middle Age series ever, the stories of the adventures of Floris in medieval Holland are also among the most funny tv-series ever. The budget was very low, which can be seen, but the interaction between the actors is nothing less but wonderful. Floris and his trusty companion Sindala is in best Robin Hood style, but with the addition of Eastern magic to the swordfighting skills and sheer strength (and luck) of our hero. Of course, it was also the start of two glorious careers, Paul Verhoeven and Rutger Hauer, who together moved on to US and greener pastures after this. The fact that the series is in b/w actually helps, no need to mess around with anything when somebody's wounded. If you can locate the tapes, watch it. Highly recommendable for an enjoyable evening or two.
