When it comes to survival, Mein Kampf goes to the stove. An inspiring story on working hand in hand with an enemy to survive and suddenly befriending one. Although Rupert Grint still has his Gryffindorian traits, it seems that he's not Ron Weasley anymore.
Todos somos iguais; as dores, as dificuldades, os sonhos e a alegria são os mesmos para cada ser humano... podemos nos ajudar e vencermos juntos, ou sermos derrotados nos matando numa guerra da qual nada se leva e não há vencedores. Nunca há vencedores numa guerra, e os protagonistas deste filme sabem disso! Vale a pena ver.
Yes, the plot is very predictable, esp. if you've watched the trailer, but I liked the movie. The cinematography was beautiful (or at least, the shots of the Norwegian snowy white landscape were beautiful for one who's only seen snows twice); it was interesting to see the distinctions between two different cultures; and that this story of enemies becoming friends was based on a true story.
