In one of the scenes, Gregers jokes about his own death by saying, "If anything goes wrong this time, please shed a tear for me. And make sure my statue is erected at a suitable place - by the city hall, for instance". This quote is taken from a letter Gregers wrote to Tikken just a few weeks before he died. In 1995 Max was present when a bust of Gregers was erected outside the Njaard hall in Oslo. 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.
