When the Raven Flies

Rated NR 109 minutes 1984

In this energetic, Sergio Leone-style, mythological story, a young Irishman sets out to avenge the death of his parents at the hands of the Vikings. When Gest (Jacob Thor Einarsson) was just a little boy in Ireland, his pacifist parents were brutally murdered and his sister kidnapped by Viking raiders, and now that he has come of age, he travels to Iceland and traces the helmeted rogues to their encampment. After he arrives, he cunningly kills off several higher-ranking warriors which causes the two brothers who lead the band to quarrel among themselves, at first believing that these deaths were due to the anger of their gods. Their internal dissention gives Gest needed opportunities to kill isolated men one by one but also leaves his sister with a dilemma because she has married the surviving leader and her loyalties are torn.~ Eleanor Mannikka, All Movie Guide
