Most importantly it shows the real psychological drama the characters had to go through. ...Read more

Really good movie from beginning to end and really interesting to see Norway''s involvement in WWII. Good quality acting from a few actors that I've seen in other foreign films.

Very well done. A human face on a critical point in Norwegian history. Karl Markovics (Curt Brauer) was a stand-out for me. Really enjoyed it. Would see again.

Good film. Good acting. Makes we want to know about Norway during WWII. Why had they wanted neutrality in the first place?

wonderful movie except for the sometimes unreadable subtitles - great acting, cinematography, highly recommend it! Watched it the second time on my computer and had no trouble with the subtitles - must have been the cable connection
