In the movie, Gregers Gram talks about the idea that someone should make a statue of him, and put it somewhere fancy, like in front of City Hall in Oslo. This is a clever joke, as there really is a statue of Gregers Gram outside Njårdhallen (the Njaard sports hall). See more »
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 »
First off, I must say that I didn't expect much even if Aksel Hennie was in the main role. And as a bonus, Nicolai Cleve Broch is in it as well. Both are two of the greatest actors in Norway, and boy.. They play well together (wich they also proved in 'Uno') But I was surprised. VERY surprised.
This movie had it all! Good in-depth characters, good story, action, love, sorrow.. you name it. I was thrilled. I had goosebumps at several times and could feel the tears pushing on a at least three of four times.
If you want to see a movie that got it all, even if you don't like movies about war. See it. I promise you that you wont regret it.
This movie became my favorite, and I will see it again for sure.
A strong 10\10.
