Director Petter NaessYear 2013Genre(s) Dramas
It's World War II and the German and British armies are firmly engaged in combat. However, when a group of Germans find themselves and their shot down aircraft stranded in the freezing temperatures of the Norwegian wilderness, they chance upon an unoccupied hunting cabin. They soon find that they are not alone as a group of Britons approach having also been shot down. Whilst the Brits attempt to abandon the rules of war and work together to stay alive and find help, the Germans insist upon treating them as prisoners of war. There is initial animosity amongst the rival soldiers, but the longer they spend together, the harder it becomes to maintain the invisible wall between them and they soon find themselves becoming closer. However, they all understand that once they are rescued, they must go back to fighting one another in spite of their friendship and the rules of war must take effect once more.
Inspired by a true story, 'Into The White' challenges the morality of war in a thought-provoking drama epic. It has been directed by Oslo filmmaker Petter Naess ('Elling', 'Mozart and the Whale') who also co-wrote the screenplay with Ole Meldgaard and Dave Mango. The flick will appear in select move theaters from April 12th 2013.
