A great piece of history, but a poor film ..... - Heroes of Telemark review by Lee

Spoiler Alert
23/01/2017

Having just read a brilliant history book on the real story behind the extraction of heavy water at Vemork, I wanted to watch this film to see the story brought to life on screen, and also to see some of the actual landscape in which the events took place. I was completely disappointed at the way the story had been changed, the historical military facts completely distorted, and the acting really poor !!! My advice would be not to watch this film, but instead to read the book by Neal Bascomb entitled 'The Winter Fortress'.
