The headmaster, Professor Carmichael, portrayed by Hume Cronyn introduces a US Army officer at school assembly, as a member of the "United States Ski Force." The US Army has never had a "United States Ski Force," however, during World War II, the United States Army 10th Mountain Division was specifically established and trained for ski combat, the only division-sized element of the U.S. Army to specialize in fighting under harsh terrain and weather conditions, the division retains the "mountain" designation for historical purposes but is actually organized as a light infantry division. The 10th Mountain was deployed to Italy during World War II, and was deactivated as a unit shortly after the war, until being reactivated in 1985. See more »

This film proves that a small story can be much more meaningful than a large one. The setup is simple: Strong friendships between students slowly turns into bitter rivalry with fatal consequences. I really like this type of film, as it reminds me of French movies where it's more about the characters and their environment. My only problem with the film was the supporting cast. From an artistic standpoint, there were some plot elements and character developments I didn't think were totally needed. They do however drive the story, which seemed to be their purpose, so I can accept them at the end of the day. A final rating of 7/10.
