Norway released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: Norwegian ( Mono ), English ( Subtitles ), Norwegian ( Subtitles ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Black & White, Filmographies, Interactive Menu, SYNOPSIS: Ni Liv (Nine Lives) was adapted by director Arne Skouen from the novel by David Howarth. Set during WW II, the film charts the adventures of Jan Baalsrud (Jack Fjeldstad), the sole survivor of a Norwegian commando unit. Trapped behind enemy lines, the hero tries to reach the safety of neutral Sweden. Despite the ongoing threat of execution -- not to mention the devastating deadliness of the Norwegian winter -- Baalsrud is aided and abetted by several sympathetic Norwegian patriots. The finale finds Baalsrud somewhere in Lapland, where salvation arrives in a most unexpected fashion. Ni Liv was one of the hits of the 1958 Cannes Film Festival. SCREENED/AWARDED AT: Cannes Film Festival, Oscar Academy Awards, ...Nine Lives ( Ni Liv )

5.0 out of 5 stars Nine lives 21 Dec 2012
By David Rowland TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In 1940, the British Prime Minister Winston Churchill gave the go-ahead to set up the Special Operations Executive (SOE) in order to carry out surveillance and sabotage in Nazi occupied Europe and "Nine Lives" is the incredible true survival story of one of their agents, Jan Baalsrud, who was the sole survivor of a party of Norweigan agents that were landed on the bleak Arctic coast of northern Norway in 1943 after a voyage across the North Sea from the SOE's main base in the Shetlands. The party was observed by German troops as it landed and everyone except Baalsrud was killed. He escaped and is hunted across the vast expanse of bitterly cold snowbound mountains and is helped by sympathetic Norweigans at great risk to themselves and they have the task of getting him across the border to safety in neutral Sweden.

Baalsrud's feet became frostbitten and he was snow blinded and cannot walk so he has to be carried by his rescuers over the mountains into Sweden. He was placed on a sledge under a large rock and after a blizzard he was buried by a snowdrift but he survived and his rescuers try repeatedly in terrible weather to get Baalstrud to Sweden but they have to turn back many times before they are finally succesfull.

The film was made in black and white in 1957 so it's style is a little dated in places but it is very well made by its director Arne Skouens and it leaves a very powerful impression of the ordeal Baalsrud suffered before he finally reached safety. He was the technical adviser for the film so it must have been an accurate account of what happened.
