Miracle at Midnight-A Rosh Hashanah in Denmark to Remember ****
23 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Outstanding film reliving the events of Rosh Hashanah, 1943 in Denmark. After occupying the country for 3 years, the Nazis chose the solemn Rosh Hashanah holiday to arrest people.

The film showed the courage of the Danish people in hiding the Jews on that fateful night. There had always been a strong feeling of toleration towards all groups in Denmark unlike the other European countries. Did not the king of Denmark wear the obligatory Yellow Badge when all Danish Jews were required to do so?

Sam Waterston and Mia Farrow are excellent as the surgeon and his wife, both of whom aid in the rescue attempt.

This is a fine film detailing the human spirit. Anne Frank would have been so proud of the actions of the Danes as she so ardently believed that all people are basically good.
