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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Tense Ensemble WWII Drama 23 July 2014
Format:Blu-ray
This is an interesting career diversion for Rupert Grint, best known as one of Harry Potter's pals. This movie is based on a true story. A couple of aircrews, one German, one English, are shot down over the ice and snowbound wastelands of Norway in 1940. There is a British officer and his gunner (played by Grint), and a German officer and his gunner. In a struggle for survival in the harsh conditions, the four of them end up in a deserted hunting lodge. Initally, the Germans, who are armed, "imprison" the English crew in one half of the lodge, but as food supplies run out, the Germans realise that the four will need to work together in order to get home to their loved ones. It is a little bit predictable, but all four actors are likeable, and the dialogue is well scripted. Being enclosed in the hunting lodge gives the film a quite claustrophic and tense dramatic impact, which I found to be very effective. This is hardly Bridge on the River Kwai or Zulu, but it is at least on a par with Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence, if you like this sort of thing, which I do. I watched this with my 11 year old daughter on Boxing Day morning last year, and it kept both of us glued to the screen. The cinematography is very good, and there are lots of eye-catching scenes of the wilderness.

3.0 out of 5 stars Norway at war 8 Jun 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Norway hasnt had much in the way of war films, was it because it was seen as a "side show"? ok Heros of Telemark with Kirk Douglas and another film which starred Dixon of Dock Green. and Max Manus i guess. so i had to buy this one, Rupert acts as a mid 20th cent working class conscript would when counteracting the enemy in deed and word. in times like these you had to have unshakeable faith in the fact you and your side was right and true and the enemy was wrong. it wasnt 90 mins wasted for me

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.

Comrades in arms, band of brothers and all that - soldiers united against a common foe irrespective of their uniform. It is all here and forms a very passable 90 mins of cinematic engagement. Simply done and effective in my opinion. I have seen many a war film and many are average. I would say that due to its unusual subject matter in this vast war it is worth a look. Based on a true story I do not think it does the real heroes any injustice.
We are all hewn from the same wood it is just that upbringing and background give us a skin deep difference. When facing adversity we humans can rise above prejudice and hatred. Our very survival may depend on it as it does in this film.

4.0 out of 5 stars A decent watch. 14 Aug 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
A fairly decent film, although i'm not sure why Rupert Grint is headline actor, as he was hardly the lead. I'm glad they resisted the urge to 'spice' this up with a load of fiction. I suppose those that have rated this a one star, are just disappointed reality isn't always as exciting as fiction. But then those same people probably think U571 is a brilliant piece of factual film making. To be honest i can't say this is 'brilliant' must watch over and over film, but it's still worth watching.

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.
