The Frida Cinema invites you to the Village of Berk, where it is cold for the majority of the year, and where dragons have a habit of stealing the sheep.
Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the III isn’t like the other Vikings in the small Village of Berk; he is more interested in inventing devices to fight the attacking dragons instead of training for battle. The problem is that Hiccup’s inventions often cause more trouble for the village, creating more damage than the dragons themselves. It’s during one particular battle that one of Hiccup’s inventions actually works, injuring a Night Fury, a rare and dangerous dragon. When he finds the creature in a nearby forest, Hiccup soon realizes that he could never kill the Night Fury, and instead becomes friends with the newly-named Toothless.
Forced to keep Toothless a secret from the rest of the village, Hiccup struggles to balance the life he wants versus the life he is expected to lead as the son of the village chief. As he discovers more of Toothless’s personality – and the truth about dragons – Hiccup begins to find his own strength and to explore what it means to be a leader.

“A thrilling drama interspersed with amusing comedic elements (rather than the other way around).” – Peter Debruge, Variety
“With its messages about acceptance, respect and tolerance, How To Train Your Dragon also brings some lessons of its own – including some valuable tools for doing battle with dragons, should the need arise.” – Linda Barnard, Toronto Star
