Wonderful historical family movie
10 May 2008 | by lorettaH304See all my reviews

My ancestors being of Scandinavian descent we selected to watch this movie at Bare Bones festival.

We were expecting some gore and barbaric scenes however my husband and I were wonderfully surprised to discover not only a unique and interesting story but a movie fit for the entire family.

Yes there were some fierce battles and fights but it was made in a somewhat non-gory, very "un- Hollywood" styled way so that even our grand children would feel comfortable watching.

The director who was even there in person took time before and after the movie to answer any questions.

L. Henson,
