I am always late in discovering films and television series that I like and the following is no exception. I want to recommend a series (probably already known to many of you) called "Maximilian Das Spiel von Macht und Liebe" (Maximilian, the game of power and love) which appeared in 2017 and has an excellent cast, including Jannis Niewohner as Maximilian I and Christa Theret as Mary of Burgundy. It's in German and French but available on DVD with English subtitles.

Here is a short clip from the series showing Maximilian in a zweihander duel. There are issues with this - he isn't wearing an arming cap or a bevor with his sallet, (artistic license perhaps) but the armour looks otherwise correct (and real!) and the overall sense of combat authenticity (including fighting positions) is very good. The series is "theatre" after all, not a documentary, though it is faithful to historic fact, augmented by excellent costumes, sets and filming locations:
