Storyline

When Esben flees the trenches of WWI, after three years at the front, it's so he can return to his beloved wife Kirstine and son Karl. But everything at home has changed - A charming German Officer, Gerhard, has done everything he can to win Kirstine's heart and replace Esbens role as Karls father. As Esben's family tries to adjust to his return from the front, the bonds of love and loyalty are stretched to the breaking point in this taut and profoundly moving film. From his hideout, Esben becomes a witness to a horrific nightmare watching his family slowly disappear in front of him as he fights for their love and survival and as he tries desperately to save his family. IN LOVE and WAR is an epic romantic drama, based on a true story.

Trivia

The lighthouse that Esben visits while trying to flee is located off the coast of Als not far from Fynshav. From there it would have been just a short boat trip across the Lillebælt to Funen, Denmark. See more »

Too long
17 February 2019 | by tobsfeldmanSee all my reviews

This is a beautiful piece. It won the SBIFF 2019 which is where we viewed. While we both felt it was an amazing film, it is way too long and becomes boring
