Storyline

This story, based on fact, is about the movement of Danish Jews out of Denmark to neutral Sweden in the 1940's. It focuses on a single family and tells of their involvement with the underground and of their own, initially reluctant, participation in sabotaging a munitions plant, and of the daughter's affection for one of the movements leaders.

Relatively flat, but not bad
17 November 2008 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Movies about the war are plentiful. Ones that are extremely original, emotionally riveting, and that you find yourself talking about for a long time after, however, are tough to come by. So it's not really surprising that this isn't one. And once you accept that this isn't going to change your life or redefine the very meaning existence, it's actually a fine release. The plot is reasonable, and develops about as it should. You never lose track, which is good, because if you break it down, it's really quite simple. The pacing could use work, if this never comes to a complete halt(it certainly seldom races). There are some sequences of tension, and they are fairly well-done. The acting is usually at least well-performed, and the two leads, Wolf in particular, are downright impressive. The effects are nicely done, without any real exception. The editing could use touching up, mainly in the couple of places where it's so sloppy that the viewer can't quite figure out what just happened or why it did. More often than not, it's sufficiently well-done. There are Hollywood moments, and realism takes a back-seat on occasion. The music is mostly fitting, except for when the score goes into something that sounds like a Psycho cue. I do think that this got one thing right that you do not see in enough authentic pieces; it actually has Danes, Danish products and such. It was pleasant to see every bit of text that was printed in this be in our mother tongue. I recommend this to fans of WW2 flicks, history of Denmark/Jews, and/or films based on actual events. 7/10
