A movie about civil war set in a viking-like era
7 July 2006 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This movie is about the young boy Harald. He lives in a village and the mad king send warriors to confiscate the ships along the coast. Harald's village don't want to part with its ship and Harald's father takes the kings messenger prisoner. Harald's father is chief of the village and he sails to the rebellion in the north to get help. Unfortunately the messenger escapes and brings a group of warriors to punish the village. Harald's mother convinces the warriors that the old drunkard of a shipbuilder can make a new ship.

This movie is taking place in a viking-like time. It is not historical correct and does not try to be. It is a serious, dark movie about that happens to people in a country in civil war.
