    • Synopsis
    • "Heart of the Wolf", a feature-length documentary, is a visually stunning journey into the creative vortex of nordic, pagan and mystical heavy metal. Metsatöll (Estonia), Finntroll (Finland) and Týr (Faroe Islands) are three folk metal bands deeply imbued with life-affirming humor and enchanted by natural beauty. Their rough music tells of paganism, nature, mythology and history. Despite their seeming niche status, they have a remarkably wide audience base - children, office rats and pensioners revel among the typical hairy heavy metal fans. The film's fairy-tale form is a fitting reflection on the present day, as people have always turned to their roots and stories during economic hardships. Through the heartfelt metalheads, the audience learns the true meaning of "nordic" - culture, environment, personality, humor, music.
