This film financed by 'Danmarks Frihedsråd' and made just after the end of the Second World War show us a picture of the different ways to portray history. We can allow ourselves a more neutral view upon history these days, but not directly after the dreadful things happened. We notice the profound contempt in the film for the cooperation policy carried out during wartime and choose to ignore, that it made Denmark get through the occupation more easily than most other nations. Honestly, our flat country is not well suited for guerrilla warfare. Having experienced so many documentaries of that period later, we also notice how manipulative the effects are. Nine years later Theodor Christensen made another attempt of a documentary on the same subject, 'De fem år', and it is less emotional but still quite subjective.
