Storyline

The old sea-captain retires, but the next day German WWII occupation of Norway begins. He then kisses his wife good-bye and is off to Army HQ. There he finds a lack of leadership and morale that offends him. They even laugh at him and his out-dated uniform and officer-rank. Secondloitnanten then finds and leads his private troop of volunteers against the German attack. The movie tells the story of a man that refuses to give up, even when everybody else leaves. He will fight for the country he loves and do his duty. Written by Stein Frydenberg <for_sf@debet.nhh.no>

Honest, down-to-earth story from the German occupation of Norway.
15 May 1999 | by jonny mSee all my reviews

Well done, tradesman-like camera-work and fascinating story (I don't know if it is a completely true story) of the problems facing the armed forces in Norway during the German invasion in 1940. Compelling story-line makes it a well worth experience, with solid acting by Espen Schønberg and the rest of the cast.
