Flesh and Blood is a 1985 historical adventure film directed by Paul Verhoeven. Set in the early 16th century, the film follows Martin, played by Rutger Hauer, a mercenary who leads a band of soldiers left betrayed and unpaid by a nobleman. Seeking revenge and fortune, Martin and his band kidnap the nobleman's prospective daughter-in-law, Agnes (Jennifer Jason Leigh). The film is known for its raw portrayal of the medieval period and its unflinching approach to violence and morality. The film was a box office flop but a critical success and is a highly underrated Verhoeven film.
