Middle Ages Now!
27 September 2013 | by (Russia) – See all my reviews

In 2010 this film was released on DVD in Iceland under this title. Hrafn Gunnlaugsson shows us the story of the blacksmith from the 17th century (truely from Early Modern times, but that's no problem here, because the director shows us Europe as traditional society). By the twist of fate former honest blacksmith turns into the executioner, meets his love, but the life in that epoch is too complicated and means of solving problems are too cruel and too simple. Hrafn was influenced by the paintings of Rembrandt and films by Bergman and Tarkovsky. The director recreated the atmosphere of the epoch very impressive. Though this film shows us the dark sides of our life, it was made with true humane feelings.
