(Nicolas Winding Refn, Denmark/UK 2009, 93 min.)

One Eye (Casino Royale’s Mads Mikkelsen), a mute warrior of supernatural strength, escapes his Norse captors with the aid of a slave boy. Accompanied by his new sidekick, One Eye faces even more dangerous situations when he boards a Viking vessel to the new world. The latest film from the Danish auteur responsible for the Pusher trilogy and Bronson is a Viking movie like no other with its mix of hallucinatory visuals, existential tensions, and Conan the Barbarian-style action sequences.
