PLOT: True World War II story about Jan Baalsruds, one of the 12 saboteurs sent in 1943 from England to the Nazi occupied Northern Norway. After their boat is sunk by the Germans, Jan goes on the run towards the neutral Sweden. However, the brutal weather conditions turn out to possibly be an even greater foe than the Nazi patrols.
Best WW2 movie I watched for a long time.
I grew up with movies like The Longest Day, A Bridge To Far etc. I have a very specific taste in WWII movies. This movie is for slow and a detailed consumption. Makes you think just how many lives got changed, lost and forgotten during the war. Makes you think about how we have everything so easy now.
