Into The White Download
Norway, WWII: A group of British and German soldiers find themselves stranded in the wilderness after an aircraft battle. Finding shelter in the same cabin, they realize the only way to survive the winter is to place the rules of war aside.
At the beginning of World War II, a hostile chance encounter in the skies above the harsh Norwegian wilderness leaves two aircraft - one British, one German - shot down in a remote and isolated region. By strange coincidence the crews seek shelter in the same cabin. They must battle to survive the brutal winter in order to get back to the war - and to fighting one another. Although war has made them enemies, as the days go by animosity proves hard to maintain. Mutual need leads to unlikely friendships, and the rules of war must be put aside.
I just watched this for the first time. I found it on Netflix and had skipped past it a few times having never heard of it. So, today I gave it a shot. I liked it, I liked it a lot. Not a blockbuster by any wild stretch, but some of the best movies aren't. It's a true story about five Airmen: 2 British, 3 German at the beginning of WW2 who end up depending on each other to survive in the remote wilds of Norway prior to the Germans controlling it. The actors do a wonderful job of showing men in such a stressful situation who must overcome their differences to survive.
One previous reviewer (jerry from the U.S.) mentions he felt the British were portrayed as a bit difficult at first (I don't recall his exact wording) and to be honest, as I watched a NORWEGIAN film I was shocked that the Germans were portrayed as all in all, the better people! But this being a movie portraying real events and people under those circumstances doing whatever they had to do, I just went along for the ride. It was a good ride. The characters develop slowly and never truly become that known to the viewer, but hey, you take 5 people who had just tried killing each other, they're not going to put aside their differences within 2 hours of meeting each other face to face. Just as they get to truly know each other, and we get to know them, they find themselves nearing the end of their journey together.
And how would WE conduct ourselves in those circumstances. This story has been done before plenty of times, but if done right, it's always a good one, especially if the story is true.
So, is it a great movie? I'm not sure I couldn't call it GREAT, but damn good, entertaining and thought provoking? Yeah, absolutely.
Let me start by saying that this is my first attempt at writing a film review and that English is not my native language, so please bear with me.
The first thing that you need to know before watching 'Into the White' is that its not a war film, if you are expecting intense war scenes and action then this film is probably not for you. More specifically, its a drama film that focuses on the subject of friendship and survival. After a dogfight over the Norwegian mountains, three German pilots find themselves stranded in a harsh and inhospitable land during winter, their luck seems to turn when they discover an abandoned hunting cabin. Soon they will meet two British pilots who are pretty much in the same condition as they are in. In order to survive, they understand that they must work together despite their allegiances. What starts as a relationship formed from the forced conditions of the circumstances, develops into a relationship of true and lasting friendship.
Having said a few things about the movie's plot, i would like to say that the cinematography is truly great as well. The harsh and unforgiving nature of the Norwegian mountains is truly captivated well. While the white, snow painted terrain is beautiful its simultaneously terrifying since you will get the impression of fear and impending death, since life is almost completely absent from the scenery. The performance of the actors is very good as well, especially the one coming from the German side.
The actors manage to portray well the uneasiness of being trapped in a cabin in the middle of nowhere along with somebody you cant trust, since that somebody is your enemy. On the downside, i would like it if some particular scenes were more stressful. What i mean is that certain scenes develop kind of slow and don't transmit the feeling of stress and agony to the viewer, since solutions to the problems of the characters come almost immediately without many implications caused upon the characters, which is somewhat unrealistic concerning the circumstances, in my opinion.
To conclude with, 'Into the White' is a film about survival and friendship. Its a drama and not an action film, that immediately makes it a movie that is not for the average masses who are seeking cheap thrills and entertainment, if you are looking for something more, then you will probably enjoy it!
