Movie Info

At the beginning of World War II a hostile chance encounter in the skies above the harsh Norwegian wilderness leaves two aircraft - one British, one German - shot down in a remote and isolated region. By strange coincidence the crews seek shelter in the same cabin. They must battle to survive the brutal winter in order to get back to the war - and to fighting one another. Although war has made them enemies, as the days go by animosity proves hard to maintain. Mutual need leads to unlikely friendships, and the rules of war must be put aside. (c) Magnolia Pictures

Critic Reviews for Into the White

All Critics (10)

As dramatically potent as a B-tier Disney drama, Into the White, while displaying instances of complexity, is mired by cliché and melodrama.

We Got This Covered

Generates a satisfactory amount of suspense and personality to achieve its limited goals, successfully spinning routine with welcome attention to character.

Full Review… | March 8, 2013

[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.

Total Film

The performances are more than adequate.

Observer (UK)

Ponderous pacing makes this true-life tale a lot less enthralling than it might have been.

Empire Magazine

Their little world in the wooden hut they find eventually becomes a microcosm of the real one, where they can leave behind some of the sillier prejudices of war.

Audience Reviews for Into the White


160821: I would so like to give this film four stars but will not. It's a good story presented slowly but effectively. It's tragic in some ways and leaves the viewer thinking; like so many other films about the human spirit. We have a poor track record and stories like these force us to confront our flaws. Reflections on a sad time but hope for the future? Well worth watching.

It's a good rendition of a tale we've all heard before. The acting is very good from all parties, which compensates somewhat for the limited movement (they stay in a single hut for most of the film) and some fairly generic attempts of the script to bash us over the head with the point.

Strong German casting, not so much on the british side. shame really as it could have been better sans the cocky.
