Before I put the " Valhalla " on my DVD player , I had my fears . I had to sit and stare at the cover for a long time before I finally got pulled myself together and throw it in the machine . Why ? Well, because there 's nothing worse than to sit down to watch a movie that you once loved and have not seen in a long time, and then discover that the film's charm and appeal has long since withered away . I feared that my reunion with " Valhalla " would be such an experience ... but from the film's first few seconds I was completely captivated - " Valhalla " is pure cinematic magic.
 
 
 
It would take several years , millions of dollars and lots of both domestic and foreign talent to get the cartoon " Valhalla " on the Norse gods completed. Unfortunately, the " Valhalla " not as successful as hoped. One company went bankrupt , sponsors gave the film the cold shoulder and abroad showed no interest in the film. But " Valhalla " has nevertheless survived , and today stands as one of the 80 most memorable movie experiences . It is a film that manages to evoke tears ... and not just the nostalgic ones (which I , of course, produced several of my recent reunion with the film) , but also genuine , natural tears because " Valhalla " are truly a touching masterful work.
 
" Valhalla " is a very complete movie . It is great velanimeret , and audio is also very impressive. The Danish actors have with their voices managed to get their characters to seem incredibly vibrant and expressive - especially Preben Kristensen lights in the role of the mischievous Loki and unreliable . And then we certainly can not forget Ron Goodwin's phenomenal music that is at once both broad , bombastic , magnificent , subtle , minimalist and subdued. Goodwin carries without a doubt one of the credit for that, " Valhalla " has survived so long.
 
 
 
Fortunately, there are many people other than me who really care about this movie , and it is thanks to the film's many fans, the " Valhalla " now available on DVD , and the film simultaneously has also been re-released in Danish cinemas , which happened earlier in years. This is a film that really deserves to be reminded. The film's plot is a little bit simple, but that's the idea behind the film and the way in which a large group of enthusiastic young animators got put the film together , which makes it so unique and memorable. " Valhalla " is not only the best Danish cartoon to date, but also a true grand triumph in Danish film history.
