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 »
Awesome film based on a true story about a small but significant resistance group in Oslo Norway during WW2. and the most prolific member is Max Manus with his daring operations and back breaking escapes from the Nazi's. in terms of Norwegian films in general ,this film differs from the rest because of it's massive budget and interesting source material. the thing that really surprised me was the detail and skill of the cgi effects from making Oslo look like it did 60 years ago to various explosions and action sequences. foremost this film is for people familiar with the story's of Max Manus and his daring exploits. Aksel Hennie did a great job portraying Manus. i didn't like Hennie before but i do now. A must see for any Norwegian or war enthusiast.
