  • Summary: A MODERN MEDIEVAL SAGA, The Wild Hunt tells the story of Erik Magnusson, a young man who decides to follow his estranged girlfriend Evelyn into a medieval re-enactment game when he discovers that she has been seduced by one of the players.
    As the down-to-earth Erik treks deeper into the
    game in search of his love, he inadvertently disrupts the delicate balance of the make believe fantasy-land. Passions are unleashed. Rules are broken. Reality and fantasy collide. The good-hearted game turns into a tragedy of mythic proportion. (Hannover House) Expand

    The acting is effective, the direction by Alexandre Franchi is confident, and the cinematography by Claudine Sauve could hardly look more assured.

    Those wearing black finger-polish are bound to appreciate it, but first-time feature director Alexandre Franchi deserves mainstream cred for his own cheeky role-play.
  3. More entertaining in concept than execution. What starts as geek comedy gradually slides into a familiar morality play about the savagery beneath the veneer of civility.

    This is a masterful movie. Not only is it funny and serious but it leaves an impression. Different from the usual films made, it will make you laugh and haunt your dreams. Definitely recommended. Expand

    Finally a film that captures the essence of Icelandic myth! The slow burn of the tension rising gave me the chills. I am eagerly waiting for a sequel from those filmmakers. Expand

    seek this movie out, but don't read anything about it.

    i saw it not knowing anything and it was definitely one of the most refreshing things
    i saw all this year.

    i hope the filmmakers involved go on to make more funny/intriguing/thrilling movies like this one
