Ridders zonder harnas

Children’s film in which a number of boy scouts find themselves in the Middle Ages.

A group of boy scouts is camping out in the countryside. At night the scout leader reads to them from an old book given to one of the boys by an antiquarian in Amsterdam. It is about a knight from the Middle Ages and his page who have fallen asleep after drinking a magic potion. One of the boy scouts dreams that he finds the knight and his page and brings them to the camp. The point being made is that boy scouts are modern day knights.

Het verraad van de zwarte roofridder

Children’s film about a mysterious green seal.

The film tells the story of knight Bruno and his children who are trying to prevent the green seal from falling into the hands of the Black Knight. The person who has the seal becomes all-powerful and fortunately, after many adventures, the seal ends up with good knight Bruno.

As in almost all of Henk van der Linden’s films the children behave like small adults, gamely leading the fight against evil.
