Trivia

A Soviet-Norweigan co-production, most of the film was actually shot in Norwegians. The Danish characters speaks in their native tongue which is understandable to most Scandinavians. For the Soviet release, the Norwegian and Danish was dubbed over in Russian and lost some of the nuances of Old Norse culture. The Norwegian release, called "Dragens Fange" (Prisoner of the Dragon) simply subtitled the Russian. See more »

Quotes

Torir: Don't stand up against the gods, Sigurd! Odin has sent us the boy alive. The lord of the undead himself did not want him to drown. Nor your sword or the sea mouth could bite him. He will bring us luck. See! For 8 days we have had to row, but now Odin has sent us a wind! Is that not enough of a sign?

A good viking movie
10 April 2004 | by mnikonovSee all my reviews

Early medieval Norway as seen through the eyes of a young Slavic man captured by vikings and taken to the north. Vikings are tough and cruel, main female character is charming, landscapes of Norway are beautiful and the story is interesting and twisted. Adventures, love, battles, intrigue... Viking longboats carefully reconstructed. One of fighting scenes shows what a berserker can do in a melee.

Recommended to viking fans!
