It's sort of like what Kingdom of Heaven could have been if it wasn't so cought in the Hollywood mold.
It's also a great Glorantha movie, and a must for anybody who want's to see what post-viking Scandinavia was like. Lovely international dialogue. Most of the movie is in english, but there is a lot of swedish, french and latin. It all feels very real.
As a bonus for us gloranthanites, the main character is a very nice Hero for a game in the western part of Glorantha. He's not just a hero because he's an über knight (though he is that too, in a rather believable fashion), but rather because his morals and firm beliefs really make him stand out.
What more can I say. I really liked this movie. Four stars, and my intelligense wasn't insulted at any point. How rare is that?
