At the beginning of World War II a hostile chance encounter in the skies above the harsh Norwegian wilderness leaves two aircraft - one British, one German - shot down in a remote and isolated region. By strange coincidence the crews seek shelter in the same cabin. They must battle to survive the brutal winter in order to get back to the war - and to fighting one another. Although war has made them enemies, as the days go by animosity proves hard to maintain. Mutual need leads to unlikely friendships, and the rules of war must be put aside. (c) Magnolia Pictures

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"As dramatically potent as a B-tier Disney drama, Into the White, while displaying instances of complexity, is mired by cliché and melodrama."
‑ Simon Brookfield, We Got This Covered
"The performances are more than adequate."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"This is clearly breaking no new ground. But it does what it does with some skill and likeability."
‑ David Aldridge, Radio Times
"Grint is great, though it does peter out a little in the final reel."
‑ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
"Generates a satisfactory amount of suspense and personality to achieve its limited goals, successfully spinning routine with welcome attention to character."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"Ponderous pacing makes this true-life tale a lot less enthralling than it might have been."
‑ Philip De Semlyen, Empire Magazine
"Although nicely produced, this second world war yarn is bland and predictable."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"[The cast] acquit themselves well, forging convincing and ultimately moving relationships as they learn how little petty political differences mean when starvation's at the door."
‑ Matt Glasby, Total Film
"Their little world in the wooden hut they find eventually becomes a microcosm of the real one, where they can leave behind some of the sillier prejudices of war."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
"Naess makes heavy weather of a hoary old theme."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
