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

One of the best films ever made
18 April 2009 | by (France) – See all my reviews

It's not for nothing this film is in the top 100 best movies of all times, but IMHO that's still an understatement; I personally would place it more like #2 or #3. It's basically a magic-realism slice of life, set in medieval Europe, complete with naturalistic scenes of human indifference and cruelty.

The previous reviewer is absolutely right, the film has nothing to do with the traditional Flying Dutchman story of a ghost ship. IT IS NOT THE GHOST SHIP STORY!!!! Probably, the filmmakers should have known better and come up with a more appropriate title.

It's a bit like The Seventh Seal, very much in the same vein (a philosophy-packed piece of magic realism set in the Middle Ages) but more rough and atmospheric, and you only need to watch it if you're in need of a strong emotional experience. Don't attempt to look for a "plot": it's there all right but it's not supposed to stick out like a sore thumb,the way Hollywood "stories" do.

Just follow the life story of a poor homeless bugger who thought (whether he was right or wrong) that he could fly. You'll never be the same person again.
