Many will enjoy this stunning documentary about a small fishing town on the northern tip of Norway, simply because it's funny and focuses on people who might almost come out of a David Lynch movie, the mostly very elderly male voice choir of the quiet and tiny Norwegian fishing community of Bervelåg. The scenes of the old boys braving blizzards as they stand singing outdoors, ice gathering on their eyebrows, verge on the surreal, while some of the interview material - particularly the confession find out more...

A high octane action - and not far from historically accurate - pic glorifying the role of Norwegian Resistance fighter Max Manus in his battle against the evil Nazi empire. We follow our likeable hero from the 1940 winter war against the Soviets in Finland through to the 1945 defeat of the Bosch. We observe his guilt at his own survival while his mates are killed in the struggle and, we learn of his own high risk manoeuvres - the mining of two German ships being a classic set piece. find out more...
