User Review

Foreign film of the year

Rating: 10/10

Although being a Norwagian WWII film, Max Manus has that international appeal because it's about something the whole world experienced.

Following Max and his saboteur friends is a real pleasure and a very realistic depiction of the occupation of Norway. It's the first time i have seen a Norwagian film of this "epic" quality and i hope we get more in the future.

If you have seen a lot of WWII movies don't think this will be just another one. This one gives you a take on the more hidden parts of the war and follows a small resistance group trying to save their small country from one of the biggest empires the world has seen.

So in conclusion i would recommend anyone interested in good foreign films or just good historical films in general.
