A remarkable lesser-known WWII story -- in which the strangest parts are true -- paired with stunning scenery and stirring acting make this a must-see film about the strength of kindness and persistence of the human spirit. It is dubbed, so the sound seems slightly off; but it's worth ignoring that.

Overly dramatized movie.....Man of many lives....feels like a Marvel comic strip, not like a true event....Lately we have too many of these "Inspired by fascinating, true, yet little-known events during World War II".....

Amazing true story. How much pain and suffering can a human being endure? Many Norwegians risked their lives to save one man and their home land from the Nazis. A bit too long. If you like snow this movie is for you.

So painful to watch; the movie revels in the first scene the main actor makes it back, but I got to the point where I wanted him to be caught just so it would end, and he would not have to suffer any longer. I fast forward through parts of the last 30 to 40 min. just to get to the end. Also, some parts were a bit hard to believe.

This is the best movie that I've seen in a long time - definitely a "Must See"!!

Gripping, tense, shocking, terrifying! I felt like I was in the movie experiencing all that he went through, I was so stressed out and glued to the TV! An incredible true story of survival and heroism by many. Great acting and cinematography.

Good little known WWII story. Unfortunately, a bit drawn out and dramatic.

A very intense movie with suspense every minute of the movie. The main actor should have won Best actor Oscar, better performance by far than any normal Oscar winner. Great must see movie!

Absolutely a must see movie very suspenseful from beginning to end. Excellent actors portrayed this story so real that I myself could feel their every emotion and physical pain. As well as being backgrounded by that beautiful northern scenery made this movie truly captivating throughout. A rare truly well done movie!!

Excellent movie. Superb acting. True story of the resistance movement during nazi occupied Finland. Another excellent movie about the resistance in Finland , is “max manus, man of war” - a true portrayal of a resistance hero.
