Maximum Hero Max Manus 

New DVD release

Max Manus' name reached international recognition with the release of this gripping war film, which is based on the true story of a Norwegian war hero. Directed by Joachim Roenning and Espen Sandberg, the movie captures patriotism through a single man's journey to liberate his country during World War II.

A displaced saboteur (Aksel Hennie) finds his way home to Norway during Nazi Germany occupation. Finding similarly outraged countrymen, they form an independent fighting force, Rognes Organization. Max becomes a target for the Gestapo commander Siegfried Wolfgang Fehmer. As the war drags on and lives are lost, Max struggles to perform his operation and holds himself responsible for the lives of his colleagues.
