Storyline

This movie is based on a book by Marie McSwigan. It is 1940 in Norway, a neutral, peace-loving country that is invaded by Nazi Germany. A gang of Norwegian children do what Norwegian children like best - ski. They are actually rescuing Norwegian gold from the nazi invaders. The Nazis search all adults but don't suspect children playing. The children carry the gold, one bar at a time, across the mountains to a fishing boat. It is a race against time, it is spring and the snow is melting. So they ski from dawn to dusk every day. Written by David Dermott <nstn1181@fox.nstn.ca>

the movie wasn't as much of a treasure as the book
24 July 2005 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

When I was in 5th grade, we read "Snow Treasure" as a class reading. A was-it-true-or-not story of how children in Nazi-occupied Norway helped smuggle gold bullion out of the country, it was a pretty interesting book. I then decided to watch the movie based on it. The movie underwhelmed me. James Franciscus, as one of the Nazis, made the movie watchable, but they could have done more with the movie. The best scene was when Franciscus' character tells the townspeople that they have to obey the Nazis' orders "...for your own good." Obviously, that's the fascist philosophy: impose rules on everyone, and tell them that it's for their own good. But overall, the movie didn't end up being what it could have been.
