Finished this this morning. It was pretty good. Good moral dilemma, great acting, neat combat scenes and beautiful cinematography. Refreshing change of setting.

I watched last night. I agree with Flashman14's comments.

Hadn't heard about this. Thanks for the tip off

Noticed that myself last night and put it on my very-long watch list. Thanks for the short review…from the trailer, it did look well done.

Watched it recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. A piece of history we Anglophones are generally not well aware of. The historical detail looked spot on with the Gebirgjager being most of the German force and little things like snow camouflage improvised out of everyday domestic materials. One thing though, I would have thought that General Dietl would have worn a Gebirgsmutze rather than an ordinary general's cap. You can please some of the people all of the time…

Thanks for the heads-up

Saw it this past week and enjoyed it. Have to add Narvik to my list of niche WW2 movies I enjoy watching like April 9 and Kings Choice.

I was expecting destroyer actions

colkitto29 Jan 2023 3:38 a.m. PST

Me too! Salutary to be reminded that it's not just a naval action, and that there were a lot of civilians under all that. And great to see the actual fjord and get a sense of scale.

We've been discussing it over on the Classic Europa mailing list. There are some criticisms, which seem well-founded, but the consensus is that it's better than "Dunkirk."

I enjoyed it but was annoyed by the tendency to "tell me not show me", always a mistake in a film.

Many black screens, throughout, with text telling us weeks have passed and how the campaign has panned out in the interval. I hoped to see the German airborne drop and at least one or two British soldiers in uniform, but notta one. Some nice attention to uniform detail indeed.
