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 »

Wonderful. Good Norwegian action/drama movies are rare.
It was a great movie. I was not bored for a second! Movies like this could very fast be ruined by to much focus on action, to much focus on drama or all to many characters. This movie handle all the parts very well. It's very good balanced movie. It goes on from 1940-1945 telling the story and feelings of Max Manus, who was a saboteur under the war. Good Norwegian action movies are rare, if you have some fearful memories of bad Norwegian movies, this will change your mind.
None Norwegians: I gave this movie 10, and that may be because I'm a Norwegian and feel this movie in a different way then you. But it's no less then a 8 if I should be harsh. This will most likely "pop" up in your rental store as a DVD with subtitles. If you not used to subtitles it can be hard I know, but it's worth it (And you will hear some German, English and wonderful Norwegian-English in the movie). It's a rental, heck, it's one to own!
