Epic tale of endurance
- The 12th Man review by AB
An epic tale about a Norwegian resistance fighter, Jan Baalsrud, desperately trying to escape from the Gestapo after a failed mission. The Arctic conditions are a greater adversary than the Nazis. Jan is close to death many times during his escape. The film is as much about the brave Norwegians who helped him as it is about Jan. The lead actor is tremendous in the role of Jan, Oscar material I believe.
Overall then, an exciting WWII story of heroism and endurance. Mostly in Norwegian, subtitled.

Stranger Than Fiction
- The 12th Man review by JP
A great, true WWII story. It has a bit too much middle, but the acting and story are wonderful. There were so many heros during the War, and this main character was certainly one of them.
