The Northman ★★★★★

"I will avenge you father! Save you mother! Kill you Fjölnir!"

Robert Eggers just delivered another banger! This film absolutely rules from start to finish and proves that Eggers is one of the best directors working today. This film has some incredible visuals and shots, the vast landscapes but also bringing in atmosphere and tension in smaller scale moments were beautiful.

The action is gory with some amazing choreography and long takes that make you feel immersed in every moment. As usual the score was gorgeous and the cinematography was memorizing, both of them together really helped capturing the epic feeling of the story. Also the entire cast was just brilliant. Each character adds something memorable, even if it's briefly.

Highly recommend to watch! 👍
