Early on in the film Max Manus meets Jens Christian Hauge, who apparently takes part in organizing a resistance cell. Jens Christian Hauge however was not involved in the resistance movement at this time. See more »
Although being a Norwagian WWII film, Max Manus has that international appeal because it's about something the whole world experienced.
Following Max and his saboteur friends is a real pleasure and a very realistic depiction of the occupation of Norway. It's the first time i have seen a Norwagian film of this "epic" quality and i hope we get more in the future.
If you have seen a lot of WWII movies don't think this will be just another one. This one gives you a take on the more hidden parts of the war and follows a small resistance group trying to save their small country from one of the biggest empires the world has seen.
So in conclusion i would recommend anyone interested in good foreign films or just good historical films in general.
