Those of you who miss the Seventies’ spirit and the Cold War can now celebrate: from Norway comes a thriller for people who love the smell of napalm in the morning. Like John Rambo on a spinner, commander Treholt leads an elite force who works for the Nordic crown and the entire West in the most covered secret. Its mission: creating attacks that will later be attributed to communism, in a joint effort by international agencies like CIA and Mossad. That way, the “ignorant masses” –as they call it– will be safe from the threat of the filthy red cloth, which in times of peace could subliminally enter their sweet minds. Treholt and his ninjatroppen ski, dive, scale, run, and jump restlessly until a real attack reveals the differences inside the “good guys”: someone wants them off the map. Strangely, in 1984 a Norwegian diplomat named Arne Treholt was convicted for selling State secrets to the KGB… “Yes, the film is based on true events, we just added some ninjas”, said the filmmakers to keep us calm.
