Company Thorvald

Company Thorvald

Resistance movements sprang up everywhere during Hitler’s invasion of Norway, and thousands of men and women were involved.

Some groups were praised and honored. Other groups sacrificed little and were forgotten. This is the story of such a group.

Company Thorvald follows Thorvald, Kåre, Leif, Alf and Sverre in the woods outside of Oslo in 1941. They have great ambitions, but struggle with motivation, abilities, and execution.

In addition to being a laugh-out-loud comedy, it is a self-revealing story full of black humor about the Norwegian WWII narrative.
