Wasted opportunity
2 December 2018 | by mchlbkkblhcmSee all my reviews

Was looking forward to this. The heroic rescue of the Danish Jews is an important story that deserves to be told and rememered.

Unfortunately the script is weak, the unsteady camera is annoying and the sound is amateurish - it's impossible to hear what the actors are whispering.

I'd call this movie a massive failure. Too bad.
