Storyline

In nazi-occupied Denmark, a group of school-mates form a gang devoted to resistance against the occupying forces, but they don't go any further than putting up posters and steeling German soldiers' helmets. But then Otto Hvidmann joins the group, and he knows how to get hold of guns. Soon the game turns deadly serious. Written by Barend

What a Movie...
24 May 2002 | by (Odense, Denmark) – See all my reviews

A movie that really touched me, and at the same time had a morale.

Some Boys in Denmark try to fight the Nazis, and the movie, is all about theyre fight against "the force".

Some great acting - especially Nikolaj Lie Kaas are doing a great job. Good directing to.
