THE FILM ABOUT GUNNAR SØNSTEBY
In 1940, the German war machine invaded Norway, and Gunnar – a young 22 year old accountant – immediately offered his services to the resistance. He turned out to have a very special and unique talent for leadership and organizing, and quickly became the head of all resistance-actions in the Oslo-area. The story of Gunnar, aka «The Chin» and «No. 24», has never been more relevant. This skinny, modest, unassuming man that with the accuracy and meticulousness of an accountant – and the audacity and bravery of a real hero – gave the Gestapo years of relentless, tough resistance.
