Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film The Heroes of Telemark

Norway's most important WW2 historic moments are told through the eyes of Hollywood with added machine gun fires. Actually it is closer to an entertaining Alistair MacLean pulp thriller without that being a bad thing. Even Anton Diffring has an expected turn as a nasty blonde blue-eyed Gestapo officer. Great shots of Norwegian landscape perfect for tourism is fun but it is not very geographically accurate either.
