Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
Robert Mitchum's is seen in one of his last performances in this Norwegian drama about four lifelong friends. After Carl (Espen Skjonberg) collapses in an Oslo street, he awakens in the hospital to the grins of his buddies Ernest (Mitchum), Ted (Cliff Robertson), and August (Erland Josephson). The dying Carl's last wish is to hear opera sung by the sister of a dead friend. The four head for Heidelberg where they all went to 1937 medical school. As they seek the singer, revelations surface from the pre-WWI Nazi era, including a plot none knew about 60 years ago.
