About this movie

This breathtaking action adventure tells an incredible true-life story of heroism and a man's unbreakable will to live. Norway, 1943: after a failed anti-Nazi sabotage mission leaves his eleven comrades dead, Norwegian resistance fighter Jan Baalsrud (Thomas Gullestad) finds himself on the run from the Gestapo through the snowbound Arctic reaches of Scandinavia. It's a harrowing journey across unforgiving, frozen wilderness that will stretch on for months—and force Jan to take extreme action in order to survive. With gut-punching realism and vivid psychological immediacy, director Harold Zwart pays tribute to one man's extraordinary courage—and to the everyday heroes who helped him along the way. Jonathan Rhys-Meyers costars.

It has been a long time since I have seen a movie that had me on the edge of my seat, biting my nails in suspense the entire time. This movie was subtitled and set in the ww2 era. It is such an amazing story of bravery and determination. The acting, the visual effects and direction were very well played. I highly recommend watching this movie.

Ill agree this is anti-German propaganda but it's also very beautifully shot, expertly acted and is thrilling and tense.
