Floris van Rozemond Junior, son and heir of a long line of knights of that name, refuses to go in the military 'family business' and becomes an actor, a profession scorned by his homonymous father, the general of the under-age duke of Burgundy. The duke chose this year to pay for his people to have bread and butter, rather then canons for the army, but relies for Floris senior's defense force on a novelty Holy relic from the East, a nail from the Holy Cross, supposedly rendering invulnerable, smuggled to his court in an inconspicuous place- a horse's arse, yet the men of his rival, the duchess of Gelre, think they got it from the stripped body of the courier. Now Floris Sr. is charged with transporting it, but hides it in cheeses, which get sold to the duchess and distributed to her men in Christmas bonus packets. The Gelre side decides to kidnap Floris Jr. and exchange him for the relic, but a Chinese, Pi, helps him escape; when Floris Senior won't even hear their plan, they start ... Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


Still keen to feature the original Floris in this remake/spoof/sequel, the story was changed so that Michiel Huisman's Floris is now Rutger Hauer's grandson, enabling them to show Hauer in flashback footage from the original series. See more »

My God , what a Mistake
11 July 2005 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I'm 42 of age.

I grew up with the original Floris series. We hurried home every Sunday to be in time to see the next episode on Dutch telly.

Floris (and some other events) made me love Knights, history, horse riding and sword fighting.

That's what I'm doing nowadays (not full-time) for a living. doing sword fighting demo's at medieval events, practicing horse riding (also as Napoleonic cavalry) and making steel suits of armour in my workshop.

So seeing this movie was somehow like a "must".

And My God, how disappointed I was yesterday evening. This movie has nothing to do with the original. This movie has nothing to do with the Middle ages. This movie has nothing to do with acting. This movie has nothing to do with sword fighting. This movie has nothing to do with armouring. this movie has no humour in it. This movie has no spirit. This movie is a waste of money. This movie is a waste of time. This movie is crap.

OK, we (my girlfriend and I) were bored and considered stopping the DVD halfway, but I really wanted to know if they succeeded to ruin the movie completely, and Yes, they did.

Please, give me money and I will make a far more better version of Floris.

I will hire a lot of reenactment groups as extra's to make a good 15th century military impression, some good actors, write a plot full of real action - not the soft cheese-throwing stuff and so on.

A movie like this should have: A hero, a creep, a babe, a battle, a pursuit. 1 to one sword action (creep vs. hero) and a tournament of course. Humour is also very important, but has to be real humour.
