700 AD. Northern Europe is divided into two worlds: the Frisians, Saxons and Danes live above the rivers, below the rivers live the Franks. They want to achieve what even the Romans did not succeed: conquer all of Europe. They put in a new weapon to enslave the Gentiles: Christianity. They target Europe's main trading center, where the Frisian king Aldigisl rules.

Did You Know?


The Friesian king Redbad/Radboud portrayed in this film is not to be confused with the catholic Saint Radbod/Radboud, bishop of Utrecht as well as namesake of many catholic institutions (such as the hospital and university of the Dutch city of Nijmegen). Saint Radbod was probably named after his ancestor, king Redbad, but he was born more than a hundred years later. See more »

Best comic dutch film ever
21 July 2018 | by hrrstrhsSee all my reviews

This motionpicture is hilarious as an earlier critic mentioned. I took me back at times as "the Holy Grale" and "the Life of Brian'. But these pictures were meant to be funny. And they were great fun. This film is meant serious but after a short time it's getting more and more funny. We couldn't stop laughing. The dark music played at scenes where nothing serious happens. The dialogues were so absurd that they became funny. Some actors just seemed to speak up their lines for the first time (in their life). The film was endless long. Days laters I still had some laughs now and then thinking about some scenes. If the Dutch would have intendend to make a comic movie they couldn't have done it better then with Redbad: Red and Bad.
