Product Description

1940 ... high above the harsh Norwegian wilderness, English and German pilots shoot each other to the ground after a violent chance encounter. Isolated, they must fight to survive the brutal winter. Though war has made them enemies, antagonism is hard to maintain as days go by. Through mutual need, unlikely frienships bloom and somehow they become comrades. War, after all, is absurd.

Product Description

United Kingdom released, Blu-Ray/Region A/B/C DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital Stereo ), ANAMORPHIC WIDESCREEN (1.78:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Anamorphic Widescreen, Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: With an all star cast, including Rupert Grint and David Kross (The Reader), Cross Of Honour, is a heroic tale of friendship, war and the fight for survival. At the beginning of World War II a hostile chance encounter in the skies above the harsh Norwegian wilderness leaves two aircrafts, one British, one German, shot down in a romote and isolated region. By strange coincidence the crews seek shelter in the same cabin. They must battle to survive the brutal winter in order to get back to the war and to fighting one another. Although war has made them enemies, as the days go by animosity proves hard to maintain. Mutual need leads to unlikely friendships, and the rules of war must be put aside. ...Cross of Honour ( Into the White ) ( Comrade ) (Blu-Ray)

4.0 out of 5 stars A little film with a lot of heart 20 Mar 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
We're in World War II, and Britain and Germany are battling over Norway's minerals. An RAF aeroplane and its Luftwaffe opponent crash in a wintry wilderness. Three German airmen take refuge in a deserted wooden shack; later, two Brits - including a ginger Scouser played by Hogwarts's Rupert Grint - stumble into it too. This film (based on a true story) tells the tale of what happens next.

All my favourite films are extravagant fantasy blockbusters, so it's a tribute to this micro-budget production that I enjoyed it as much as I did. Although most of its action was confined to a space about the size of a double garage, the quality of the script, performances, cinematography and editing were such that my interest never flagged. There was tension aplenty, and humour, and pathos, and finally - or so it seemed to me - a lesson in human nature well worth learning and remembering.

Complaints? The blu-ray sleeve, with its dramatic image of aircraft and infantry absent from the film itself, might lead you to expect a different kind of film from what the disc actually offers. And I'd like to have seen a bit more of the film's beautiful Norwegian and Swedish locations. Oh, and I could have done without the script's handful of four-letter words - but then I am more than a bit tweedily old-fashioned.

The picture quality of the blu-ray is fine. The audio is just modest two-channel PCM, but this is entirely adequate to a soundscape not very different from a play's. About twenty minutes of German or Norwegian dialogue are given clear, legible subtitles. The only extras are trailers for three other low-budget war movies, although the film's closing captions tell us what happened to the film's protagonists after the events depicted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful 17 Nov 2012
Format:DVD
A beautiful film about the lesser-seen parts of war: friendship and companionship between forced rivals. With stunning performances by the whole cast (especially Lachlan Nieboer!) this poignant, moving film certainly deserves a watch. An unknown gem.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cross of Honour 5 Oct 2012
By MMarsh
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Rupert Grint has proven that some child actors get better as they age. In this war time tale of male bonding, courage and friendship he again demonstrates his versatility with accents and depth of expression. I would be surprised if there wasn't an OSCAR waiting in this young man's future.
This is a film about relationships and human resilience, don't expect thrilling chases or big special effects. Not all the dialogue is in English, it is not an English film, but there are clear subtitles.

3.0 out of 5 stars Engaging but Lacking 18 April 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Cross of Honour is a well intentioned story but it's slow and predictable.

Set in Norway during World War Two, German and British downed aircrews happen across the same hut during a storm, the battle for survival and witts is played out.

It's predictable from the pristine uniforms and makeshift equipment, the false hopes, the coup d'etat which turns the tables midway through the film, the personal story lines interwoven with the story of war and survival.

This is a low budget film, the cast and the mixed German / English track adds interest but not enough.

I am a big fan of epic/war films, However there are many, many bad ones which is disappointing, this film, luckily, is not one of them. I was not expecting much from this film as I had never heard of it before, After the first five to ten minutes I had already decided that I was going to watch this film to the end. Rupert Grint shows that he is so much more than just the average child actor, his character is believable and he plays his role very well. Lachlan Nieboer is an actor I have never seen before and his performance as a posh RAF Captain is performed well and he works well with the remainder of the cast. Florian Lukas, Stig Henrik Hoff and David Kross play the roles of three German luftwaffe crew members and they all play their parts in this film without any floors with Stig Henrik Hoff becoming a much liked character in this film. I would recommend this film and it shows that a good low budget film can still tick all the boxes that some high budget films still fail to !!

4.0 out of 5 stars IT'S BEEN A PLEASURE AND AN HONOUR 28 July 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Three Germans and two British pilots are shot down over Norway and end up in the same hunting cabin. They struggle with each other and realize that they are not much different. The come together to survive.

This is not an action war story, but an anti-war story. It is a good entertaining drama which is filmed mostly in one location. The film consists mostly of dialouge and interaction between the groups. It has some minor attempts at humor, but misses the mark unless a Brit asking for tea under the circumstances is funny.

It is a film I would want to see once, but not a second time.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex, or nudity.
