"In the eyes of Dad was really at the time of the drama in Narvik, so it's clear that you behave proudly," says Steinar Hardersen, who has a good knowledge of his father's efforts for the Hyundai Battalion and what happened on the front.

"If it was a movie, I suggest Gørild Mauseth as a mom. Gregory Peck became father, Smilar Steinar.
For many years Hollywood director Alte dreamed of filming a film about the Battle of Narvik, a military story about which many emotions cope with national history. The same applies to the Alta Battalion, which was on Narvik front in 1940, where Tommy's grandfather was involved. A lot of research has been carried out, but some pieces remain valid.
"We have not received financial assistance in full and it depends, inter alia, on the financing of the Norwegian Film Institute," Wirkol warns of Altaposten.
In a statement in Altaposten this week reveals that Hans Hardersen has become a representative protagonist of a military event in Narvik.
"Hans is not only an exciting and unique story in himself. He also fought under the Hildmos Battalion, one of the first to fight against the Germans and the only Norwegian battalion involved in Narvik advertising, warns Wirkol.
However, he also deals with several aspects.
"Our main focus is on Hans and the soldiers in the Hyldmo battalion, but we will also show tests to other Norwegian soldiers such as Alta Battalion. A very important part of our film is to show how civilian women and men in Narvik experience the worst nightmare of their lives, when suddenly they take liberty from them, describes Wirkol.
Like most narratives, Steinar uses the term "father" and "morsel" when referring to parents who were in the middle of a drama. The story of a young fiancé couple is also a pure film show.
"Farsan took the light bulb in April 1940 to bring Mommy to Tjeldsund for security, and then returned to work in Setermoen," said Steinar, in an article in Altaposten this week.
