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 »
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 »
Captain Charles P. Davenport:
Listen to me, you twisted cheese-eating gnome. While you've been sitting on your arse down here waiting for the sun to shine, we've been struggling to survive, in a remote cabin, with some Germans - and we did survive, most of us. And now, I have my lighter back, and that is the end of the matter.

Although it does not really qualify as war film, 'Into the White' ranges among the best WW2 films I have seen. The makers as well as the actors deserve praise for getting the most out of a fascinating story: The film is beautifully shot, the soundtrack fits perfectly and the characters are convincing. Indeed, great care must have been taken when choosing the actors, for they not only have the correct origin (except for Strunk, though this will probably go undetected by non-native speakers) but also look like people did back then.
All in all it might not be an overly thought-provoking film, but nonetheless it is very watchable - highly recommendable.
