Storyline

When the archaeologist Sigurd can't settle on the myth about Ragnarok, the end of the world in Northern mythology, he decides to go on an expedition together with two colleagues and his two kids. This adventure leads them to Finnmark in the Northern most part of Norway, and into "No man's land" between Russia and Norway, where no one has been in modern times. Old runes get new meanings when they unveil the truth. A truth bigger and more spectacular than you would have dreamed. Written by OJT

Trivia

Ragnarok (Old Norse Ragnarok, "The Doom of the Gods" ) is the name the pre-Christian Norse gave to the end of their mythical cycle, during which the cosmos is destroyed and is subsequently re-created. See more »

Goofs

When walking through the forest to get to the lake several oak trees are visible in the background. As this movie is set in Finnmark on the border toward Russia the climate is too cold for oak. This indicates the scenes have been shot further south. See more »

Love it!!
10 August 2019 | by smedleybillSee all my reviews

I love this movie. It's a movie that doesn't need excess violence, cursing and tons of cgi to tell an effective and gripping story. I also appreciate the wholesome aspect of the story telling. It's nice watching a movie that when it's over it doesn't leave one feeling emotionally dampened. I was invested in the excellent actors and not only cared about them but the movie made me wish I could know folks like them in real life. I just wish there were more movies like this that didn't just strive for the most base common denominator.
