Northmen is about a group of Vikings, some who have a Viking-y accent, others (like the main man, Asbjorn) who are surprisingly English.

Review: Swiss Epic Northmen - A Viking Saga Looks Like Hollywood Fare

Assessing the merits of Claudio Fäh's Viking odyssey is a tricky task because of what it represents in the panorama of Swiss genre films. With an international cast, and production set in South Africa, Northmen - A Viking Saga is one of the most significant efforts of its kind. Of course, genre films do exist in Switzerland but they are rather underground. The quite impressive quantity of short films dealing with horror, fantasy or science fiction seldom get released outside the country, while feature films remain discreet endeavors, such as Michael Steiner's Sennentuntschi: Curse of the Alps (2010) and Das Missen Massaker (2012), Bettina Oberli's Tannöd - The Murder Farm (2009), Mathieu Seiler's Der Ausflug (2012), Ivan Engler's Cargo (2009) or Olivier Beguin's Chimères (2013)....
