Viking society and everyday life.
4 February 2008 | by remi-40See all my reviews

A rather good movie depicting how a viking society might have, indeed probably did function in the viking era. It shows the vikings from all their sides, as battle thirsty raiders and warriors, as leaders of their own men, as traders, and as hunters and farmers. While there is a "morale" with the movie that war and bloodshed is not always the solution, the movie does not go so far in it's attempt to impose proper modern morales as to hide the darker parts of viking history. Slaves, or thralls, were usual those days, and while they were considered the property of other humans, this movie also shows that a certain friendship could arise between master and thrall, despite conflicting expectations of the master from others.

All in all a rather good display of viking culture and society, despite somewhat lacking Norwegian acting. A very good movie for anyone that has an interest in the viking era.
