a.k.a. The Rose and the Sword

dir. Paul Verhoeven

Our Boy Rutger Hauer review

Director Verhoeven's first English-language film about a band of medieval mercenaries who abduct a princess and holes up in a castle. Brilliant full-frontal depiction of brutal medieval life, not for the faint-hearted. Brion plays Karsthans. Stars Rutger Hauer. Highly recommmended.
