Patriotic drama about a resistance fighter in his painful odyssey to reach Sweden from Norway. The chief merit of this lies in the wonderful locations: the fjords, the moutain peaks, the glaciers. The Nazi manhunt against Baalsuds provides war action, but, ultimately, the film's motor is the struggle for liberation, the solidarity of the locals, the hostile environment and the hero's hallucinatory ordeal.
