"the DRAMA of A life which is enough for several feature films. All people have something worth telling, but the true story of Louis Zamperini is so remarkable that it is strange that it does not become the movie earlier."
"He took part as a runner in the olympics in Berlin in 1936, and published two autobiographies. The brothers Coens screenplay based on another book, by Laura Hillenbrand from 2010."
"the Movie begins over the Pacific ocean during the second world war, when Louis Zamperini is a bombardier on a u.s. aircraft. His crew are ordered to carry out a rescue mission with a damaged plane and crashing out to sea. Already there starts a strange adventure of survival against all odds."
"But it is becoming more and worse. A large part of the film takes place in japanese prison camps. Torture, atrocities, a long time of torment and hopelessness. One of the japanese officers will do anything to crack the young american, and the movie depicts the brutality and detail känslostarkt."
"Louis Zamperini died in July 2014, 97 years old. He did not win any OLYMPIC race, but he made a feat in Berlin. He survived a war in which many died. A long life full of great drama, but the film's depiction of his years has monotonous periods in the middle of the intensity."
