Storyline

In 1218 Danish king Valdemar sends his homonymous young son and heir in safety, as war is at the borders, to Erskil, the bishop of Ravensburg, who is instructed to see to the prince's education. Alas the bishop is the brain of a conspiracy to seize the crown for himself, as most of the nobles are dissatisfied with the endless wars that bring them no profit. The prince and kitchen-boy Aske accidentally fall out of the castle and overhear the conspirators, but are seen and pursued by the men of the One-eyed Man, a feared mercenary who is in the conspiracy to take mortal revenge on the king for leaving him behind on a battlefield where he lost an eye which was eaten by an eagle, which he tamed and now shares his sight with.

A gem of a film!
8 April 2001 | by Ali-CatSee all my reviews

This film has far more than a viewer might expect. Not only are the performances first class .. most especially from the leading boy Nijas Ornbak-Fjeldmose, but there is excellent camera work and direction. A feast of film making perfection. the opening scene is simply written with a boy moving through the woods on alert for attack during a war game with his father, the King. However, this scene is made memorable by the amazing waltz like relationship between the camera and the boy. Nijas ( Valderman in the film ) is an actor of great ability who truly enters into his parts, and is capable of suspending the disbelief of even the harshest critic. He plays the 12 year old prince who is sent for safety into the hands of the Bishop. This Bishop, however, is far from trustworthy and attempts to use the boy to unthrone the king. But the prince escapes and, with the aid of a servant boy, manages to save the day. A good adventure yarn for all ages, with an evil one eyed warrior who tracks his enemies through the eye of his eagle.

I highly recommend this film. You might only be able to find the german language version on video, but don't let that stop you.
