Product Description

Danish drama set in Copenhagen during World War 2, based on real events and eyewitness acounts. Flame (Thure Lindhardt) and Citron (Mads Mikkelsen) are the code names for two undercover resistance fighters working for the Holger Danske group, which works to undermine the Nazi occupation. The younger and more idealistic Flame fantasises about launching an open attack on the Nazis, while sensitive family man Citron is more concerned with the politics of resistance. But when their boss Aksel Winther (Peter Mygind) orders Flame to execute his girlfriend, beautiful and enigmatic courier Ketty (Stine Stengade), he finds himself questioning the morality of the order. Finding themselves in an increasingly claustrophobic situation, the two men realise they have only each other to rely on, and work together to track down Gestapo chief Hoffmann (Christian Berkel).

Denmark's supposedly most expensive film to date proves to be a surprisingly interesting, complex, and in places even an exciting proposition. Based on the true story of two resistance fighters in Copenhagen in 1944 during the German occupation, we are introduced to Flame (committed and idealistic young killer of all things Nazi) and his driver, Citron, whose increasing involvement with the dirty end of the business mirrors the final collapse of his family life. They get their orders, they go and kill their targets. However, as the film progresses, the unthinkable happens - they begin to question the targets - is their handler doing the right thing? Is Flame's girlfriend being completely honest? Things begin to go horribly wrong, and Flame and Citron decide they need to follow their own path, choosing their own targets. Far from being a standard whitewashed history as told by the winners of war, this movie has no compunction about showing something rotten in the state of Denmark - and in so doing, allows a more complex look at what it takes to step up to a man or woman in their house or in the street, hold a gun to their head and pull the trigger, than has been seen in a long time.
It's a tad long, and yet is at times so complex you sometimes find yourself wondering what might have been left on the cutting room floor that might have filled in a few questions. Keeping track of who is who is challenging at times as the different resistance factions are not fully explained, and certain minor characters roles in the chain of command are not always clear.. but it's worth the concentration. Certainly the acting from the leads, as well as many of the secondary roles, is outstanding - we really do feel we scratch beneath the surface of the men - particularly Mads Mikkelson's Citron.

I found this movie to be gripping from start to finish - something which I find quite rare in WWII movies made in recent years. In the process I learnt quite a lot about the Danish resistance movement and the rather "different" occupation that the Danes had under the Nazis. The movie shows how traumatic it must be to kill an enemy in cold blood - even traitors/collaborators! There is also the doubts that a wartime assassin must have when he/she kills a civilian on the instructions of a "higher authority" - is the person really a collaborator etc?
I see that the film is based on historical fact - always a big "plus" in my books. Definitely a worthwhile watch!

This is an excellent film about a Resistance to the Nazis during their occupation of Denmark.
It contains a very powerful message that not all Danes were collaborators or "Quislings".
Mads Mikkelsen and Thure Lindhardt are superb as Bent Flame and Jorgen Citron.
Mikkelsen can always be associated as playing "Le Chiffre" in James Bond 007 - Casino Royale but his performance in this film outshines 007!
Look out for Christian Berkel as the Gestapo Chief, Hoffmann.
One of the endings is particulary moving and very sad when an agent fights to the very last and never surrenders despite all the odds against him.
For those of you who love Scandinavian movies and stories be they true or not, Hollywood couldn't produce a movie like this!
I saw this movie in the cinema and decided I would buy it because it is so unique.

Why oh why don't the distributers realise that lying about the nature of a film, is certain to generate a lot of poor reviews?

This film does not have "the thrills of an action blockbuster", nor is it "breathlessly paced", nor are the characters "the deadliest heroes the world has ever seen.

If you are expecting and ripping action film you are certain to be disappointed.

Most of the action scenes are either someone being shot at point blank range, or unbelievable executions by the Nazis using sub machine guns. In this film the German's for some strange reason don't seem to want to interrogate any of the Danish resistance that they capture. Instead they just gather them together and mow them down in the middle of the street. The way that the Nazi's go about trying to capture Flame and Citron at the end of the film is also far too stupid for an audience to accept.

Another issue I have with the director, is the amount of conspicuous driving around Flame and Citron did. They seemed to have access to so much petrol that they could even afford go on vacations to the seaside. I suspect as with the machine gun massacres, that the director was trying far too hard to capture, the spirit of American gangster films.

What this film really depicts are some of the contradictions of the Danish resistance. The executions performed by Flame and Citron in this film are intentionally controversial. This is a correct thing to show as it very unclear as to the value of their actions compared with the harm they caused. It is impossible to tell from the film alone whether the real Flame and Citron deserved to be called heroes at all.
