Storyline

The Danes are thrilled after the victory in the 1st Schleswig War. Danish politicians now dream of incorporate Schleswig to the Kingdom of Denmark, in defiance of the peace agreement. In a small community, the brothers Peter (Jens Sætter-Lassen) and Laust (Jakob Oftebro) grow up, and both fall in love with Inge (Marie Tourell Søderberg). When the Danish President of the Council of Ministers, Mr. Monrad (Nicolas Bro), claims that Schleswig must be incorporated to the Kingdom, everyone is aware that it is the start of 2nd Schleswig War. But only this time, the Danish troops are met by Otto von Bismarck's (Rainer Bock) Prussian and Austrian army. An army much bigger and stronger than the Danish. 150 years later the maladjusted teenage girl, Claudia (Sarah-Sofie Boussnina) is on the edge of a meltdown and is forced to be visit friend to the old Baron, Severin (Bent Mejding). Inges old dairy catches Claudias interest, and through Inges writings, Claudia experience thousands of young Danes,... Written by Frederik B.

Enriching
7 June 2015 | by (Canterbury) – See all my reviews

I am 59 and I can be a hard critic but this was one of the greatest dramas I have ever seen.

The production, story, acting are all outstanding. Some people may not like the anti war sentiment. Yet this drama achieves the rare thing of managing to convey powerfully both the reasons why politicians can lead us to war and the horrors that then shatter the lives of those families who fall victims to it.

I have rarely been so moved by a drama. It has tragedy, pain, humour, humanity and above all it gives a us hope - Despite death, life must go on and we owe it to the those who have fallen to live it to the fullest.

If you decide watch this drama till the very end you may be lucky and feel as enriched as I did.
