    Flesh + Blood
    When an attempted political coup in 16th century Northern Italy fails, most of the mercenaries hired by the coup leaders disperse. Not so Martin (Rutger Hauer), who intends to rob his duplicitous former employer Arnolfini (Fernando Hillbeck). Martin is able to raise his own army by using a stolen religious artifact as a talisman. He later kidnaps Arnolfini's prospective daughter-in-law Agnes (Jennifer Jason Leigh), who saves herself from gang rape by feigning eternal devotion to her captor. Weeks of plunder and destruction follow, with a deadly plague thrown into the stew. Flesh and Blood has also been released under the title The Rose and the Sword. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      Only Blu ray for this crazy movie.

      First off I have to say I really like this movie. This is the only blu ray available. The transfer looks great at one moment then grainy and horrible the next. I would blame the source prints used to put this thing together. Sound is solid, not many extras, but some. If you like the movie this is the one to get, just don't expect the greatest blu ray experience for this lost gem of a flick.
