Operation Napoleon, a co-production from Iceland and Germany is a film about the discovery of a Nazi war plane in a melting glacier in Iceland. Kristin Jóhannesdóttir (Vivian Ólafsdóttir) is a lawyer who gets sucked into an international conspiracy after her brother finds the Nazi wreckage. The scene is immediately inundated with dangerous interested parties, including the CIA, who has been secretly trying to find and remove the plane for decades. Kristin hooks up with a young professor (Jack Fox) and a local man (Ólafur Darri Ólafsson) to unravel the mystery behind the plane, while also trying to stay alive.
Operation Napolean is based on a popular novel of the same name by Arnaldur Indri∂ason. You can buy it here. (affiliate link) I, for one, am glad that the adaptation stayed in Iceland.
