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

Amazing, breathtaking.....
17 March 2008 | by ritsertSee all my reviews

Slow paced movie, brilliant acting by Groothof. This is one of those rare movies that leaves you watching a blank screen for 7 minutes after the end-titles. That leaves you speechless long after you left the theater. I rediscovered it 10 years later and like a real classic it still has not lost its strength.

If you want adventure the Spielberg or POTC-way, skip this one. If you want to learn anything, are curious about things and have patience this is an overwhelming epos. This is an action-movie of the heart and of the mind.

And don't nag about the goofs. Not everyone has a vain absurd budget that could save a small country from starvation.
