Trama e commenti: - - «Nel 1969 [Paul Verhoeven] realizza Floris, serie tv in 12 puntate di grande successo in Olanda, sulla storia di un cavaliere medioevale interpretato dall'attore Rutger Hauer, che in seguito apparirà in diversi film del regista. Già dai suoi primi lavori dimostra la sua attitudine per un tipo di cinema solido alla ricerca di equilibrio tra la forza, l’originalità del materiale narrativo e le esigenze della spettacolarizzazione».

Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - - - - - - - -«The success of television series like the British Ivanhoe, the French Thierry La Fronde and the Flemish Johan en de Alverman inspired Carel Enkelaar, manager of NTS (forerunner of Nederlandse Programma Stichting) to make a similar series, set in the Netherlands. It was written by Gerard Soeteman. The series, though filmed in black & white, was very successful, and had many reruns through the years. It has also been shown in East Germany and Scotland. It has Count Floris van Roozemond (spelling varies with o/oo, s/z and d/dt), returning home after a trip around the world, and accompanied by the Indian Sindala (Bergman), only to find his castle occupied by Maarten van Rossum, upon which he sides with Wolter van Oldesteijn, who is allied with Burgundy against Karel van Gelre, the duke of Gelre, who is allied with the Frisian pirate Greate Pier. Note that, apart from Sindala, these are historical figures, but if this Floris would have been Floris V of Holland he would have been an anachronism because he lived in the late 14th century and the others around 1500. A clear anachronism is the presence of the pirate Greate Pier, who was indeed a contemprary, but not active as pirate or such before the death of Philip the Handsome. In the series, Pier is always guarded and surrounded by at least three Arumer Black Heap-members (Gelderse Friezen, as been called in the series)...».


Serie di 12 episodi, in onda nella tv olandese dal 5 ottobre al 21 dicembre 1969.
