Aro Recommended Max Manus: Man of War


Norway 2008, 118 minutes
Dir. Joachim Roenning, Espen Sandberg
In Norwegian with English subtitles
Rating: [R]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Action/Adventure / War


Aroview: Rousing wartime actioner chronicles the exploits of irrepressible Norwegian resistance hero Max Manus, whose sabotaging of the Nazi’s stampede through Scandanavia tipped the balance in the Allies’ favour.

Carefree in glorifying the deeds of its titular man-o-war, this is a shameless WWII spectacle comfortable with mimicking Hollywood blockbusters and giving its audience – in particular, the Norwegians who flocked to cinemas to relive the legend of their national hero – something to cheer about.
