The 12th Man is a story that emerges from the dark recess of Nazi era. It highlights the ominous acts of the secret police – Gestapo. Norwegian resistance fighter Jan Baalsrud (Thomas Gullestad), in 1943, was on the run from its clutches and got stuck in the snowbound Arctic reaches of Scandinavia for months. His harrowing journey across the area having blood-curdling cold and virtually no food to survive is worth watching.


The entire movie is full of footages depicting Gestapo chasing Baaalsrud’s in the forests, in lakes and ultimately in Northern Europe’s vast snowfields.
