Plot Summary: "Beowulf & Grendel" is a medieval adventure, part legendary fable, part horror-story. Based on the seminal 9th century Anglo-Saxon poem, "Beowulf," it tells the blood-soaked tale of a Norse warrior's battle against a great and murderous troll, Grendel, who has laid seige to the kingdom of Hrothgar, the much respected king of the Danes.
The story – filmed in Iceland - plays out in a brutish Northern Europe where the reign of the many-gods is giving way to one - the southern invader, Christ. Beowulf is a man caught between sides in this great shift, his simple code transforming and falling apart before his eyes.
"Beowulf & Grendel" strips away the mask of the hero-myth, leaving a raw and tangled tale.
