Storyline

Late 16th century, persecuted protestantism and general dissatisfaction with the Catholic Habsburg rule in the Netherlands lead to large-scale plundering and vandalizing of churches, only harshening the Spanish Inquisition, sparkling the Eighty Years War. Flanders, 1568: Italian minstrel Campanelli tells he followed a Dutchman, the robber of a golden chalice, but failed to prevent him being taken -after banging a country-girl- by the men of a rigid farmer Netelneck, who has him tied-up inside a huge shit-container. After Campanelli frees him, the gold stays inside, and the Dutchman is killed, but the minstrel turns to offer the paying audience a happier version. Seven years later, he scares the Dutchman's posthumous son into bringing him food and convinces the kid he can fly, like his dad, who is on a grand ship, but fails to drag the gold out and is blinded and chased by Netelneck. Fourteen years later, the minstrel returns and tricks Netelneck into diving after the gold himself so ... Written by KGF Vissers

Strong film
3 September 2006 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

One has really to fit in the widely accepted image of a bull-headed American, to classify this film as "ugly" (I address one of the previous comments). In this film, Stelling, in my opinion, really succeeds to recreate the "look and feel" of the 18th century western Europe, which one can get a grip of by looking at the paintings of the great artists of the epoch. The characters are "painted" equally well, the acting is more than "just" good, and the story is solid, mesmerizing, and above all human (in the real, "old", sense of the word, which has little to do with contemporary liberalism). The film has ideas and images borrowed from the art and literature of the period, but it prefers to build upon them rather than to use them as they are, and the result is interesting, thought-provoking and sometimes amusing (e.g., the "breugelian" dwarf, Campanella). It is tragic and revolves around the basic spiritual symbols of the Christian civilization. As such, it can be interpreted as an allegory (which had a fundamental meaning in those ages society). And I found this allegory to be very appealing.

P.S. Sorry for possible grammatical or syntactical mistakes in the text. I'm not a native English speaker.
