5.0 out of 5 stars Improbable Friendships: Another side of war April 8 2013
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
INTO THE WHITE, also known as CROSS OF HONOR, is based on fact and in adapting the facts to the screen director Petter Næss along with co-writers Ole Meldgaard and Dave Mango have turned out a film that could easily have been a stage play, restricted for the most part as it is to the confines on one cabin. But then the vast beauty of the Norwegian landscape would have been sacrificed and it is that use of the bleak snow clad solitude that underlines the effects of isolation on the human response and survival under austere conditions.

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. The facades of their military personalities fade into the unique personal needs of each and the result is an improbable friendship laced with angst, philosophy, humor, and mutual caring: in the end we are all equals and `enemies' morph into caring friends.

As the credits role at film's end we are informed of the fates of each of the five men. The story is solid, touching, humorous at times, and carries a strong message about what war does to men's minds and It is only when isolated from the `badges of countries' that these unlikely men becomes bonded. A very strong film. Grady Harp, April 13

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping March 14 2013

I really enjoyed Into the White. The acting was very good, good enough that I wanted to reach through the TV and slap the characters silly a few times. As the story of the British and German airmen trapped together in a snowy cabin unfolds, you get to know each one and feel for them and the decisions that loom ahead of them. Knowing this was based on a true story made it all the more poignant. If you like WWII movies or character-driven movies, then you'll probably enjoy Into the White.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suprisingly good May 4 2013
By pjt - Published on Amazon.com

As probably most viewers of this review have already read the other reviews. So basically, it is a (true) story of two sides (German and English) shot each other planes down, they end up helping each other survive in a high regional mountain cabin in Norway. Of course, the era was WWII. What was intriguing was the evolution of how both sides became good friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice." June 21 2013
By Bigcove - Published on Amazon.com

In any war, there are encounters that don't fit easily into history books. This fictionalized real-life account of WWII enemies is a good, entertaining view of what regular blokes go through when they meet and haven't the full pressure of a propaganda machine pushing down on them.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow what a great suprise, WWII Movie (German and English Viewpoints) May 8 2013
By Andrew Sliwkowski - Published on Amazon.com

"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.
