Why watch this film?
In times of successes like 'Game of Thrones' and 'Vikings', medieval movies are in fashion. 'Redbad' takes place in present-day Netherlands, about the invasions of the old Frisian kingdom by the Franks, still at the beginning of Dutch identity. With beautiful scenes and an excellent reconstruction of the 8th century, the feature film delivers action and history in the right measures. Perfect for those who want to learn about aspects of European history that are rarely addressed in educational books.
