when the movie came out gave me a chance to see the exploits of manus and the oslo gang and from what i can tell was pretty accurate. the movie doesn't sugar coat manus. he is a brave, troubled, driven guy who hates nazis in his country and is sworn to rid the country of them as many young norwegians were. aksel hennie plays him that way and you get the feeling that he is a pain to be around often and a semi mean drunk. he is constantly haunted by the actions and the comrades killed during the war. he was a classic ptsd victim to the end of his life.
the movie is interesting if you want to know about a theater of the war rarely covered. the action is so so in spots but i liked it and liked seeing parts of oslo i remebered from my youth. the cast is good and look like what the gang was, a bunch of idealistic teens and 20 somethings who had guts and hate of nazis. made in a typical scandinavian way. it is subtitled in english so not hard to follow. not for everyone but ww2 buffs may find it a new view of underground patriots not often seen.
