Story


"Into the White" is an anti-war movie. High above the harsh Norwegian wilderness, English and German pilots shoot each other to the ground after a violent chance encounter. Isolated, they must fight to survive the brutal winter. Though warhas made them enemies, antagonism is hard to maintain as days go by. Through mutual need, unlikely friendships bloom. Somehow, they become comrades. War, after all, is absurd.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the performances are solid - Goodbye Lenin! actor Florian Lukas is the standout - but ponderous pacing makes this true-life tale a lot less enthralling than it might have been..”
by Phil de Semlyen [Empire Magazine]
“..it's all a bit tame, predictable and muted; the inevitable revelation of German decency seems contrived and there's an outrageous plot cop-out towards the end..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
“..generates a satisfactory amount of suspense and personality to achieve its limited goals, successfully spinning routine with welcome attention to character..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]
