A new movie has just opened in Norway. Thale

“Thale” is a feature film based on a mythical character in

Svenska folksägner', Herman Hofberg (1882) Artist: Per Daniel Holm.

Norwegian folklore called ‘HULDRA’. According to the myth a hulder is a beautiful lady living deep in the woods, and it is said that she seduces men that work or hunt in the woods. She hums a beautiful song and lures them to her deep in the woods, and they never return to their village. You can recognize a hulder by her cow tail.

You can read more about the the Huldra at Wikipedia.

Here is the trailer.

I really enjoyed Trollhunter, another movie from Norwegian mythology, and Rare Exports from Finnland. This looks like another great fantasy show.
