Storyline

"Shetlandsgjengen", which translates as "the Shetland-gang", relates the true story of the illegal traffic across the North Sea from German occupied Norway to Shetland during World War II. A small group of Norwegian sailors loosely connected to the British navy take refugees from Norway to Shetland in small fishing-boats, equipped only with low-caliber weapons to protect themselves from German airplanes and patrol-boats. The film is closely based on real events, and many of the members of the gang, including the leader, called "Shetlands-Larsen" play themselves. Written by Oystein Brekke

Will they survive the impossible conditions?
17 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A truly exciting war picture, probably the most realistic picture I've ever seen. Virtually all the main actors are the actual people portrayed in the events, and the settings appear also to be genuine. I don't think you could make such a picture any better. I was on the edge of my seat for the whole movie.

Larsen and his loyal crew make the run on small fishing vessels from Norway. They wish to run guns to fight the resistance against the Nazi occupation of Norway. The stormy and cold North Sea is a bleak and inhospitable place even in peaceful times. The resistance fighters boats, lightly armed, must evade German planes, brave the stormy weather, and dodge collaborators. Will they survive the impossible conditions? It's as exciting as they come. A great watch for the true war movie lover.
