Storyline

In World War II, the German pilots Lieutenant Horst Schopis, Josef Schwartz and Wolfgang Strunk crash their airplane in the wilderness of Norway after shooting down a British airplane. They walk through a snow storm until they reach shelter in an abandoned hunter cabin. Soon the British pilot Captain Charles P. Davenport and the gunner Robert Smith arrive in the cabin and they become prisoners of the German pilots. However, after the initial friction between the enemies, they realize that they should team-up to survive in the wilderness in the beginning of an improbable friendship. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

Based on true events. The names of the German airmen were not changed for this film, but the names of the British airmen were changed. The real names of the British airmen were captain R. T. Partridge (Davenport) and R.S. Bostok (Smith). See more »

Goofs

When the German bomber crashed, it is likely at least one engine would have been powering it, if not both, so some of the propellers should have been bent back due to the aircraft's forward speed at contact with the ground. They are all in pristine condition as if a snow had merely covered a parked aircraft. See more »

"Good, intelligible and reflective..."
2 October 2012 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Norwegian screenwriter and director Petter Næss' ninth feature film which he co-wrote with screenwriters Ole Meldegaard and Dave Mango, is inspired by a true story that took place in April 1940 during the German invasion of Norway. It premiered at the Filmfest Oslo in 2012, was shot on location in the village of Grotli in the municipality of Skjåk, in the municipality of Stryn, Norway and in the locality of Brålanda, Västre Götland in Sweden and is a Norway-Sweden-Germany co-production which was produced by Danish producer and actor Peter Aalbæk Jensen and American producer and director Valerie Edwina Saunders. It tells the story about three German soldiers and two British soldiers who after an air combat that results in a crash-landing on a Norwegian mountain during WWII, finds refuge in an old cabin. The Germans takes the Brits as prisoners, but as they become more aware of the situation they are faced with, they realize that they have a better chance of surviving if they make a truce.

Finely and acutely directed by Norwegian filmmaker Petter Næss, this quietly paced and somewhat fictional tale which is narrated from multiple viewpoints, draws a moving portrayal of five soldiers' struggle to set aside their differences and forget that they are enemies while being stranded in a deteriorating small house on the Norwegian countryside. While notable for its naturalistic milieu depictions, fine production design by German production designer Udo Kramer, cinematography by Norwegian cinematographer Daniel Voldheim and costume design by German costume designer Steffi Bruhn, this dialog-driven and narrative-driven story depicts several sparse studies of character and contains a great score by Norwegian musician and composer Nils Petter Molvær and composer Peter Godfrey.

This humane, historic, atmospheric and at times humorous chamber drama and anti-war film which is set against the backdrop of the wonderful Norwegian highlands during a winter in the early 1940s and in the beginning of the German occupation of Norway, is impelled and reinforced by its cogent narrative structure, subtle character development and continuity, quick-witted dialog, multiple viewpoints and the fine acting performances by German actor David Cross, Norwegian actor Stig Henrik Hoff, English actor Rupert Grint, British actor Lachlan Nieboer and German actor Florian Lukas. A good, intelligible and reflective character piece.
