A hidden jewel.
20 July 2004 | by (Pennsylvania, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I stumbled across this movie during a sleepless night and I was mesmerized. I cannot believe that I never heard of it before. The storyline is great, the actors played their parts very realistically. I do have to say that D.B.Sweeney was my favorite. He is just great in the leading man role. I always thought he was an under rated actor, but now I am convinced of it. As the friend of someone who's Father was in the "resistance" in occupied Norway and subsequently killed, I was particularly pleased that the resistance fighters in Scandinavia were getting some kind of recognition although not as much as the French or other countries. There were a lot of acts of heroism by everyday normal people during WWII and as the daughter of a WWII veteran, I love seeing these incidents being portrayed. Yes a lot of people died in concentration camps, but thanks to their neighbors a lot survived too. I cannot recommend this movie highly enough to any viewer, except young children. There is some violence and the story line would be beyond their comprehension. I managed to find a copy of it by searching the internet. I cannot wait for it to arrive so I can wear the tape out over and over. I could not find a DVD version and I would like to know if there are any out there. Also, the other actors in the film, where they Danish? Except for Tovah Feldshuh and D.B. I don't remember seeing or hearing of them before. A definite hidden gem, watch it if you can.
