Storyline

The film chronicles a long-ago time when men relied not on their intellect to make points, but on their swords. A mythical warrior ('Ralf Moeller (I)') wanders the snow-capped landscapes of the North territories on an arduous quest for vengeance. Amid nobles and schemers, saints and brutes, and lovers and fools, this Viking swings his sword for his family's honor, his beloved's hand, and the very survival of his pitiless culture.

At last, an attempt at saga accuracy
25 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

One of the few films to actually try to be faitfhul to the actual Icelandic sagas, this film is a treat for those actually interested in such tales. That it is filmed in the relevant locales, with appropriate numbers (a local chief's following of 7-10 men, not thousands) and so forth all lend extra verisimilitude to the film. It is true that the melding of the elements from various sagas is a might uneven, as is the acting, and the viewer must pay attention to keep the storyline straight (unless they also have a grounding in the source material). But still it is a welcome entry in the filmography of the Norseman, with just about the only half-way accurate portrayal of these people, as well as correcting the filmmaking community's neglect of these rousing tales.
