Aksell Hennie is World War II hero Max Manus: Man of War.

Music Box Films released the acclaimed World War II action movie Max Manus: Man of War on Blu-ray and DVD on June 28, 2011.

The most expensive film ever produced in Norway, the movie recounts the story of one of Europe’s most celebrated WWII-era resistance fighters, Norwegian soldier Max Manus. A pioneer of Norway’s resistance movement and one of the most brilliant saboteurs of World War II, Manus’ aggressive sinking and damaging of German ships of war have become legend since he conducted them some 70 years ago.

The winner of six Norwegian Academy Awards, Max Manus: Man of War stars popular Norwegian leading man Aksel Hennie (Age of Heroes) and is directed by Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg.

Max Manus played in theaters and film festivals around the world and received a limited theatrical release in the U.S. last September.

Presented in Norwegian with English subtitles, the Blu-ray and DVD carry the suggested retail prices of $38.94 and $29.95, respectively.

Bonus features on the discs include a 45-minute documentary with interview footage and archival material of Manus and his daughter, as well as the film’s directors, cast and crew.
