Storyline

Old Archibald is chased from the countess's city after she made her physician and counselor Esculaap taste the droppings he bought from him for her. On his way out, he finds a baby in a bundle, marked 'take care of Mariken', and raises the girl his weird, yet sort of wise way, in the wild. One day she wanders off and is captured by the Black Widow -who lost her family and neighbors in a Black Death epidemic- with chained Jan the 'rat boy', being calling both devil's seed, but he helps her escape to the city. There she gets saved by the troop of wandering performers of an actor made up as Devil, but when they play Moritoen on the castle the unhappily childless countess chases the actors but keeps Mariken, who learns her story before escaping and finding out her own and Archibald's...

Well done!
7 April 2004 | by (DownUnder) – See all my reviews

The name of this movie, Mariken, resembling that of my wife, and the fact it is Dutch spoken made us watch it last night. We were not disappointed. Sure, it is not a fast moving story, but it very much reflects the pace of the era: people were not in the great hurry our society apparently cannot do without. Laurien van den Broeck played her role of Mariken admirably and with gusto - she was a delight to watch and listen to. The unashamed frankness of her questions to and opinions of the adults around her were a real joy and reminded me of my own childhood. Unfortunately, these days such an attitude is often accompanied by lack of respect - there was no trace of that in this movie's script. I'm afraid though that some of the crispness of the dialog was `lost in translation' to English.
