the 12th man true story

[8], On review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, the film holds an approval rating of 86%, based on 21 reviews with an average rating of 6.52/10. Oh yeah, and I absolutely HATE when animals are harmed in movies, so I will immediately think less of any movie, where animals are harmed for entertainment (even if the animals are just really good actors). Go figure! Most of all: it does wonders for your sense of perspective. It belonged to the sister of Marius Gronvoll, an active member of the resistance. Not only because it’s so amazing (and almost unbelievable) that it seems like it was thought up in Hollywood. [5], In March 2004, producer Veslemøy Ruud Zwart secured the film rights to the book Jan Baalsrud and Those Who Saved Him. I don’t really think that’s fair to either movie. The movie is directed by Dutch director Harald Zwart. (Shooting script by Harald Zwart). He swam from Rebbenesøya to the next island, where he was found by two girls in a fishing boat. And people assume horror lovers are the messed up ones. The 12th Man tells the dramatic story of Jan Baalsrud's escape from the Nazis during the Second World War. The shed in which Baalsrud lay alone was about six feet, by nine. Jan Baalsrud's story was also told in We Die Alone by David Howarth. The mountainside was too steep to carry a stretcher up, so they hid Baalsrud in a small shed and, back in Furuflaten, Marius convinced a local school teacher and carpenter to make a sled, despite the fact that Germans soldiers were literally camped out in the school. The film’s director, Harald Zwart, a prominent Dutch-Norwegian who works in Hollywood (he made The Karate Kid), based the script on the book Jan Baalsrud and Those Who Saved Him (2001), written by Tore Haug (Baalsrud’s second cousin) and Astrid Karlsen Scott. They didn’t stand a chance. That is just one example of the bravery of dozens of ordinary Norwegians, without whom the exhausted, emaciated Baalsrud would never have made his escape. The next group of helpers who were supposed to come and continue his journey failed to locate the stone for nine days. There are hints of an accent (he sound a bit Austrian every now and then), but overall, he does an excellent job. To me, the work Harold Zwart did on The 12th Man shows he has a talent for this particular niche, so hopefully, he’ll do more in the genre. After they left, he made a phone call to his friend, a local Nazi official. Finally, a group of Sami, Norway’s indigenous people, attached the sled to a team of reindeer. As the German ship opened fire, someone lit a 30-second fuse and they all jumped into the water. The real-life horror of stories from World War 2 have been told ever since the war ended. Their mission had gone disastrously wrong and now Baalsrud, the only survivor, was making a desperate effort to escape. His script sticks closely to the facts of the escape. At some point that day, a group of local Norwegians from an underground resistance network found the stone they had spent the last week searching for, and dragged Baalsrud on a sled towards the Swedish border. His eyelashes were frozen solid, he was snowblind from an avalanche, and nine of his toes were in advanced stages of gangrene. I had a hard time watching this movie.
