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
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 »
I am a great fan of the original Floris from 1969. I was very pleased when the announced that there was coming a new Floris. But this product is terrible. The bad characters are completely over the top and has noting to do white the middle ages at all. When the film was in in the movie I did see some pieces and was already afraid of the product. Now I have rented is in the videostore, and I am very glad that I didn't bought is. What a wast of time and money. I really hope that there will be no sequel on this film. Or it hat to be white a complete new crew an part new cast. The only realistic role is that of Victor Lowe, Floris the father. He is the only normal people in the whole move. Other Karakters like Van Rossum Jr. is more a Harry Potter figure than a Floris figure.
