News & Interviews for Into the White
Critic Reviews for Into the White
As dramatically potent as a B-tier Disney drama, Into the White, while displaying instances of complexity, is mired by cliché and melodrama.
Generates a satisfactory amount of suspense and personality to achieve its limited goals, successfully spinning routine with welcome attention to character.
[The cast] acquit themselves well, forging convincing and ultimately moving relationships as they learn how little petty political differences mean when starvation's at the door.
Ponderous pacing makes this true-life tale a lot less enthralling than it might have been.
Audience Reviews for Into the White
This is a typical anti-war film (previously titled Comrade), directed by Petter Nęss. The film is based on a true story. On 27 April 1940, Luftwaffe pilot Horst Schopis' bomber, was shot down near Grotli by an Fleet Air Arm Blackburn Skua fighter, which then crash-lands. The surviving German and British crew members are not friendly towards each other, but later everything changes: in order to survive the harsh winter in the Norwegian wilderness, they have to stand together. That's how an unlikely, lifelong friendship develops.
Very warm script written by Ole Meldgaard, Dave Mango and the director Petter Nęss. In it two Englishmen and three Germans are all at war and they are all killers... in a war you have to be... partly driven by their own attitudes, and partly by the mechanisms of war, they acknowledge that other laws prevail. Through the well written screenplay we can almost feel that both parties are "heroes" and "villains."
Perfectly cast stars David Kross, Stig Henrik Hoff, Florian Lukas, Rupert Grint and Lachlan Nieboer give extra flavour to this work of art.
Nice cinematography, safe camera work, good acting and reliable director made this film a success.
