The Heroes of Telemark

Panavision vistas of Norwegian snowscapes dwarf the characters of Mann's spectacular World War II mission movie, in appropriate correlation to the atomic threat posed by the Nazi heavy water plant Douglas and his resistance allies must destroy. If the landscape no longer mirrors psychology as it did in Mann's classic Westerns, at least it still dominates the narrative with impressive ironic force.
