Venice Film Festival: Valhalla Rising Photocall with Mads Mikkelsen
Finally! First pics are now released of the Valhalla Rising photocall at the Venice Film Festival. New are pics of director Nicholas Winding Refn and wonderful star Mads Mikkelsen. From my scant understanding of the languages, most of the reviews have been generally positive (ie the ones so far are in french/italian both of which i know very little, and crappy google translations dont help)However almost all mentioned (some flat out complained very negatively) about the excessive violence and one report said people left at the beginning of the film like they did for Vontriers disaster, but I am dubious on this source. Others praised the visuals and all while good for Mads, lamented he did not say a word. More photos here from Getty, same over at Life.com, both marked tho.
