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 friendships bloom and somehow they become comrades. War, after all, is absurd.

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.

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.

I have a strange addiction to WW II films. I was first drawn to this as I saw Rupert Grint and thought it would be an interesting watch. I was not disappointed! The tense and hilarious moments were a delight to watch! It really does make me happy to see material like this, where being human overshadows war.

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.

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

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.

Arrived next day ,good film ! , as someone who is very interested in WW2 I found this film ,considering it was made on a budget to be very authentic and a good addition to my collection ,Norwegian ,German and English .
Just shows how people can come together in adverse conditions ,despite the initial animosity .
Many years after the war the German pilot met his English counterpart and became friends ,it is based on a true story although names have been changed nevertheless very good .
Basically shows you how stupid war is !
