I've seen so much. I was taken a thrall by a heathen. He gave me you. Despite all I had to endure... I still miss him, and love him. The God who made the sun has always been my God and heard my prayers. Then one can call him Christ or Odin... Grim is right. Frightened men are dangerous.

I don't know if you've ever seen a movie about vikings, but as far as i know they are few. Of those I've seen this and the one before (korpen flyger) and i think that they are the only "true" viking movies up to this point.
This movie has pretty bad image and sound quality which is understandable since its old. But it wins my heart for it's story, it follows a kind of norm in viking tales, basically an eye for an eye. This movie is a follow-up on the story told in "Korpen flyger" so that one should be watched first in my opinion.
I am no expert in vikings or history but i have read a lot about them and many sagas (if not all) from the "Edda", anyways i liked this movie because it feels natural and real.
Some warnings though:
1. It may not be so interesting for you if you're not interested in vikings.
2. They speak Icelandic and the one i saw had Swedish subtitles only, so beware, you may not understand a word.
