My memories of Floris are intense.
I saw it many years ago by the hand of a great
friend who was a great fan of cinema always trying to find a first hand good maded film.So he went for vacations to Holland
and as usual he brough us several movies between long and short films.Amoung them was Floris.
I couldnt understand a word,but we had another
friend who could speak Dutch so to understand the film became a very funny and warm thing to do.Between jokes about
my Dutch and my attention to the film that reunion has been a great moment in our lifes.
Rutger Hauer was such young actor then.Also Paul
Verhoven was such young director.But the all work was much more than a piece of film made by young talented people.The all
serie was an interesting and amusing work of art and I can say that I enjoyed each moment of it.With a great humour and
a great vision I remember Rutger Hauer giving an impression of youth and talent becaming the first interesting point
of the all serie.
But the all work of the cast was impressive and
it was such fun to see Rutger fighting and smilling to his opponent,as long with an impressive soundtrack.In black and white
Floris became almost a cult series in my country with lots of fans .As for me and my friends ,we became very interested about
both Actor and Director and years later we all enjoyed many other movies of this interesting association.
Without any doubt a wonderful film with many
reasons to be kept in our hearts,Floris with Rutger Hauer still makes me laugh. And love.
