The Northman - TRUENORTH

The Northman

The Northman is an epic revenge thriller, written and directed by Robert Eggers, that explores how far a Viking prince will go to seek justice for his murdered father.


The Viking Age

With a mind aflame with hate and revenge, Prince Amleth, the wronged son of King Aurvandill War-Raven, heads to cold, windswept Iceland to retrieve what was stolen from him: a father, a mother, and a kingdom. And like a war dog picking up the enemy's scent, brutal Amleth embarks on a murderous quest to find the hateful adversary, whose life is forever woven together with his by the threads of fate. Now, in the name of Valhalla, no one can stop the Northman, not even God.


Icelands raw nature

One of the main filming locations of The Northman Iceland is the Svínafellsjökull, an outer glacier of the Vatnajökull ice cap. Whenever the Viking characters are shown on vast glaciers in The Northman, the actors are actually filming on the real Icelandic Natural Reserve.
