On April 27, 1940, while the Germans and the British were struggling to gain control of Norway's vast natural resource to aid their war efforts two enemy fighter planes were shot down over the tundra of Norway. We meet the German soldiers first - Lieutenant Horst Schopis (Florian Lukas), Feldwebel Wolfgang Strunk (Stig Henrik Hoff) and the wounded Unteroffizier Josef Schwartz (David Kross) as they struggle for survival, sleeping in snow caves and finally fining a deserted one room cabin where they settle in without much food and little comforts. Next we meet the British crew of the plane that crashed in the conflict with the Germans - Captain Charles P. Davenport (Lachlan Nieboer) and Gunner Robert Smith (Rupert Grint). The Brits find the German held cabin and join the Germans in a hostile relationship: there is a constant struggle of who is in charge, the Geneva convention rules of prisoners of war etc. But gradually the friction diminishes as the five men cope with finding food, warmth, and the care of Josef's arm, which has turned gangrenous.Read more ›
"Into the White"
- If you seen every WWII movie 3x and would like
to understand how Being Human, Being Soldiers provide a
dwelling where 2 English Aviators and 3 German Aviators
(who shot them down) create a narrative that keep's you
at the edge of your seat.
Realizing their sworn enemies are the only hope to survive,
this friendship cross-cuts humanity during the horrors of WWII,
a kinship and battle to survive leads them only to be seen an traitors.
I watched it 3 times and got something new each time,
I hope others share there how it changed their way of
looking at the world.
No need for a CGI effect-laden film to tell this story; for once, the actors have to carry the storyline and they did it well.
This one had me focused throughout.
Real men doing service for their countries, yet realized that they were also human beings
I was not disappointed, it's a very well acted and well produced film that is supposed to be based on a true story. I found the story compelling, it held my interest from the start and by the end I had become attached to the characters, I really cared about what happened to them. And I completely forgot that Rupert Grint was in the Harry Potter movies, he did a pretty good job in this film.
If you're a World War Two buff or you just like movies about the human spirit and about how people respond when they find themselves in tense and difficult circumstances, or if you just belief in the basic goodness of the human animal, even in wartime, then watch this movie. you won't be disappointed.

The story was based on a real event but it was not accurate as I would have liked. It did not teach how survival can go many ways and not always toward cooperation. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Roger A. Stevenson
