Operation Cobra went into Norwegian theatres as Operasjon Cobra. Aimed principally at children, the film tells of a group of three schoolkids who head for the Oslo airport to witness the arrival of a Kissinger-like American diplomat. Here they become mixed up in a PLO plot to kill the American visitor. Though the children are clearly the heroes, it is interesting to note that the assassins are not drawn as villains--merely fervent nationals doing what they believe is right. Operation Cobra is based on a novel by Anders Bodelsen.
