Don't Waste Your Time
23 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To put it simply...just awful. The dialogue was boring, poorly delivered, and the characters were dull. One other tidbit, the musical score was at best, generic, at worst mundane. I can't imagine what they were thinking.

I forced myself to watch it to the end because it was a short film, and the subject matter had such potential. I expected to be engaged and looked forward to learning something about WWII that I had never read about before. I was looking forward to seeing a young Jane Seymour, but even that was a disappointment.

I suppose if you are a huge fan of Denmark, this might hold some interest for you; but otherwise, you would be better off watching a rerun of Hogan's Heroes.
