Despite its deviations The Northman still manages to astonish as a meticulous amalgamation of myths and sagas. Egger's pedantic direction once again makes for a vivid and immersive picture steeped in studied minutiae.
Incredibly touching. And despite discovering the twist in utero the film still manages in its effectiveness. Elevated by Haley Joel Osment's incredibly nuanced performance. One of, if not, the best child actor performances I've seen. Thanks to @Eloi for the recommendation.
