The King´s Choice

The new Norwegian WWII movie "The King´s Choice".

I am really, really keen to see this new Norwegian movie, about the German invasion on April 9, 1940 and the immediate aftermath. The Norwegian king looks a lot like the real man, and everything else looks good too, at least in the above trailer.

It has after just a few weeks become Norway's most-watched film of the year. Any day now half a million Norwegians will have seen it.

Oscar stuff, perhaps?


  1. You will like it despite there being a heavy focus on interpersonal aspect rather than only history.
    The move drives home that the unprepared suffer and Koth and Nygaardsvold should have been put on trial after the war.

  2. Grandpa was doing his National Service when the Germans came. First time he saw an SMG was when they took one off a German prisoner. Brave and dedicated troops are good. Brave and dedicated troops with lots of modern equipment is better.
