Storyline

In World War II, the German pilots Lieutenant Horst Schopis, Josef Schwartz and Wolfgang Strunk crash their airplane in the wilderness of Norway after shooting down a British airplane. They walk through a snow storm until they reach shelter in an abandoned hunter cabin. Soon the British pilot Captain Charles P. Davenport and the gunner Robert Smith arrive in the cabin and they become prisoners of the German pilots. However, after the initial friction between the enemies, they realize that they should team-up to survive in the wilderness in the beginning of an improbable friendship. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

Based on true events. The names of the German airmen were not changed for this film, but the names of the British airmen were changed. The real names of the British airmen were captain R. T. Partridge (Davenport) and R.S. Bostok (Smith). See more »

Goofs

When the German bomber crashed, it is likely at least one engine would have been powering it, if not both, so some of the propellers should have been bent back due to the aircraft's forward speed at contact with the ground. They are all in pristine condition as if a snow had merely covered a parked aircraft. See more »

Quotes

Gunner Robert Smith: Hey Skunky! How come you're not cold? Maybe you're too fucking stupid to feel cold.

Very enjoyable true story
22 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

I really liked this movie. It doesn't attempt to be a Hollywood blockbuster or anything like that. Just a good, smart, watchable film.

If you're reading these reviews, then you probably already know the basic story: several British airmen during WWII find themselves in a remote Nordic cabin with several German airmen. They must cooperate or perish.

There's a great scene where the group is drinking merrily, and find themselves outside, watching a spectacular display of the Northern Lights. Even in the midst of despair, the men are able to enjoy a total moment of solace.
