Mariken | Chicago Reader


A medieval mystic exiled from his Dutch village (the commanding Jan Decleir) adopts an abandoned baby girl, and a few years later, at the height of the Black Death, she sets off in search of her mother. Peter van Gestel adapted the screenplay for this 2000 feature from his own novel, and its implausibly constricted world allows for any number of coincidental encounters. Yet the film's rickety plot is redeemed by director C.V. Andre's richly detailed evocation of the Middle Ages, rife with pestilence, superstition, and wanton cruelty toward children. 90 min.
