Storyline

The story, based on an ancient legend, concerns Hagbard (Oleg Vidov), the son of a slain Norse king. Seeking revenge against the rival clan responsible for the killing, Hagbard calms down long enough to establish a truce. He also falls in love with Signe (Gitte Haenning), daughter of his onetime enemy. Signe's former beau, sizzling with jealousy, breaks the truce and makes it appear that Hagbard was responsible. The young prince escapes, but returns disguised as a woman to his beloved Signe.

Internationally acclaimed dynamic Icelandic Viking saga!
7 May 2000 | by (Malibu, California, USA) – See all my reviews

Dynamic Viking action, stunning cinematography, superb direction, and fine performances bring this love story, often compared to "Romeo and Juliet" by international critics, to a brilliant realization. An artistic triumph well-deserving of a new 21st century life on video or DVD! I would LOVE to own a copy!
