The 13th Warrior

The 13th Warrior (1999) is an action film based on Michael Crichton's novel Eaters of the Dead[?], directed by Crichton with John McTiernan[?] and starring Antonio Banderas as Ibn Fahdlan, Vladimir Kulich[?] as Buliwuf (see Beowulf).

The frame story is based on Ibn Fadlan's writings (which is an authentic Arabic text), the central sequence of events is that of the Beowulf saga. The movie goes to some pains to achieve the right "Nordic" athmosphere, for instance with Norwegian spoken in parts of the dialogue and some Scandinavian actors.
