Nice little indie film
25 November 2008 | by citrusf2008See all my reviews

I enjoyed this little indie film.

from reading the boards opinions vary greatly, but thats the subjective thing about film/art.

I enjoyed the story, and the subplots. The actors contributed well to the storyline although I would have liked to see a bit more close ups but thats besides the point.

I enjoyed the editing techniques which toggle between present and past.

its amazing that viking villages still exists. I really enjoyed the authenticity of those longhouses , viking boats and splendid viking battle combined with a vikingish montage. very artistic.

its obviously a low budget ( less than 5 million dollars) but its still a nice little indie movie regardless of some of the less than commendable remarks made here.

I think Im taking a trip to visit scandinavia next summer to visit this place.
