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.

An utterly mesmerizing nightmare.
17 January 2003 | by (Valkenvania) – See all my reviews

Good acting, really, this Picture contains chiefly truly creditable performances. The one who experiences 'De Vliegende Hollander' cannot be narrow-minded of course, it's a long journey which You should enjoyed, because it's a vast emotional realm - filled with anger, trembling pain, fear, unspeakable beauty, laughter, treason, hopelessness and hope in the very same piece. You might love it or loathe it, some find it a trifle odd, but there's one thing that You must consider as a plainly wrong one - NOT GIVING IT A CHANCE. You'll catch Yourself being completely transfixed my dear Fellow. Thumbs up for this synonym of the fabulous gem which gets You closer to the secret of dreams, this ambiguous and artistic piece will show You what dreams are made of. I hope, it doesn't sound too indistinct. It's a long time now, since I've seen 'De Vliegende Hollander' and I am afraid that I am not... exaggerating, right now with my bloody, oh but how sincere fascination! I am Still able to recall 'tears of joy' after watching this One. Okay enough...! See You, Enjoy / Check It Out!
