Filmmaker Petrus van der Let explores the parallels between ancient religions & Christianity. Drawing on both religious texts and modern-day reenactments, this film examines the roots of religious symbols and figures, particularly the image of the dragon and what this creature represents. Dragon Slayers is the fourth part of a mini series on the origin of myths and religions in infant perception.
I watched this movie 4 times in order to read the sub titles. When I finally got the subtitles straight then I could concentrate on the movie itself. The pictures are okay but mostly you will be in front of the person speaking. I didn't get much out of the movie when it came to the devil and the dragon symbolism that they talked about. What I did get was that it dealt with a lot of folklore. I think the language was danish and it made it hard to understand what was going on. I did enjoy the last clip of the movie where they showed a festival and brought out a dragon though showing the slaying of the dragon.
