Storyline

It's been ten years since the Black Plague ravaged the lands. A poor family sets out on a journey to find a better place to live. On a desolate mountain pass, the family is attacked by a pack of merciless killers. The only one to be spared is 19 year old Signe, who is taken hostage and brought back to camp. There she learns she is to face a fate far worse than death, and she realizes the only thing to do is to run away. But her escape does not go unnoticed, and now the chase is on. Written by Tor Sverre Lund

A girl named Signe witnesses the murder of her family by a ruthless gang of warriors and is taken hostage by them.
6 June 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I am partly rating this film a 10 because I feel the overall rating is much too low. Mostly, though, I feel those stars are well-deserved. This movie is absolutely beautiful in terms of cinematography, and very riveting, story-wise. What is the one thing every living being must do or attempt to do? From chimp to human to bullfrog? Survive. This is precisely what this film was about. Survival. Simple, perhaps, but when the main theme of a film touches survival, and is coupled with great actors, a superb music score and continuous suspense and excitement, it will be nothing short of gripping.

I highly recommend this one.
