Goofs:
Continuity: Near the beginning of the film, there is a montage showing, among other things, a resistance fighter tied to a post and being executed. A square white piece of paper is attached to his torso as a target. Immediately after he is shot we see four bullet holes in the paper forming a "parallelogram" pattern. Moments letter, in a close up of the dead fighter, the bullet hole pattern is reversed. It's pretty obvious that the paper had been taken off between scenes and then reattached backwards relative to the first shot.See more »

Realpolitik and double-crossing in WW2 occupied Denmark, 20 March 2009
Author: Joe from United Kingdom

I don't know what to say about this movie. Original setting for many of us, Flame & Citron is based on the lives of two resistance fighters/assassins ("Citron & Flame") in occupied Denmark back in World War Two. The premise is that our leads are on order to do their killings but their own aim is to kill the leader of the local Gestapo unit. However, realpolitik, double crossing, self-preservation and a femme fatale all just get in the way of everything, so our lead duo have no option but to battle as much with their own as with the occupiers. Personal relationship problems for our duo helps to keep the film human, and the story never glamorises the pair, and in many ways does show them to be quite amateurish despite their legendary status even showing their botched jobs.

So how does it all go? Well, it's not an easy one to follow. Many a time not sure what to make of the storyline if we were to really learn much. The whole realpolitik aspect of the piece never seems to resolve and with so many sides in this film, it's hard to keep up. In fairness, that was likely the main point showing the true difficulty of war, as each group seems to play off of each other for their own ends, whatever they may be. This is a weakness overall, and with its length quite tiresome.

Acting in general is faultless and beautiful shots of the Scandanavian countryside plus panoramic views of the cities are great on the eye, but some bad camera work at times is just really amateurish and spoils things.

Overall a good film that is interesting and a new-ish angle for WW2 films. Some very good points and most will like it, but not as special as it possibly could have been.
