Útlaginn (original title)

100 min  -  Biography | Drama  -   31 October 1981 (Iceland)
The film details a blood feud during Viking times, and based on an Icelandic saga (The saga of Gísli Súrsson) written in the 13th-14th centuries. The sagas were about feuds of ordinary people within families, and conflicts between Icelandic settlers during the 10th century. The movie follows the story of Gisli, his family, and his adventures as an outlaw. It is considered authentic in capturing the essence of the sagas, and culturally accurate of the peoples of the period.
