In the movie, Gregers Gram talks about the idea that someone should make a statue of him, and put it somewhere fancy, like in front of City Hall in Oslo. This is a clever joke, as there really is a statue of Gregers Gram outside Njårdhallen (the Njaard sports hall). See more »
In the scene were Manus is introduced to "the gang" in 1940, Jens Christian Hauge is introduced. He actually was in jail at the time and joined the resistance later. See more »
Awesome film based on a true story about a small but significant resistance group in Oslo Norway during WW2. and the most prolific member is Max Manus with his daring operations and back breaking escapes from the Nazi's. in terms of Norwegian films in general ,this film differs from the rest because of it's massive budget and interesting source material. the thing that really surprised me was the detail and skill of the cgi effects from making Oslo look like it did 60 years ago to various explosions and action sequences. foremost this film is for people familiar with the story's of Max Manus and his daring exploits. Aksel Hennie did a great job portraying Manus. i didn't like Hennie before but i do now. A must see for any Norwegian or war enthusiast.
