The German soldiers play The Badenweiler March while marching down Karl Johans Gate in June 1940. But in the summer of 1939, Germany's Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels signed a police order, forbidding this March to be played except at functions attended by Adolf Hitler, and only in his presence. However, Hitler is not present here, and whoever was responsible would have to pay a fine or go to jail. See more »
I found this war film very enjoyable. The story and acting was good as was the design. It has good moments of suspense and was like an old fashion picture of bravery and winning over the bad guys. The characters are interesting with the central protagonist Max Manus being someone we do care about.
It is good to look at with some very good photography at the outside locations. I particularly enjoyed the night scenes during the sabotage sequences in the harbour.
I would say a good film to watch for teenagers and adults.
It is a foreign language film with subtitles.
