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.

Blu-ray.com

[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

½

[img]http://maatriks.eu/portal/images/Blogipildid/Into_the_White.png[/img] This is a typical anti-war film (previously titled Comrade), directed by Petter Næss. 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 Næss. 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.
