Appearing as a extra in this film is what made Noomi Rapace want to be an actress. According to Rapace, some of the actors where getting tired after a long day of shooting the wedding scene and asked director Hrafn Gunnlaugsson to call it a day. When he heard this, he pointed at Rapace who was still dancing after hours of filming, and said: "Look, if that little girl can continue, then so can you!" See more »

What a powerful story and screening!
I just saw the movie here at Rice University. I was very lucky because the director was here with us brought by our English Department. He was very kind to share stories and anecdotes about the movie and answer our questions. I must admit I am very biased because I'm in love with Iceland but if there others over there like me, we do need to see this movie. Gee...I'm still in the XI century with all that people fighting against that landscape and those brave men. Anyways, it was very nice to talk to the director (the Icelandic consul was here as well) but I'm serious, the movie is really, really powerful. Excellent. Who wants to see the Lord of the Rings after this?????
