Moving,menacing & fabulous !!!!!
This is a brilliant film. The true story is well portrayed by the two lead actors who bring to life the real characters. It is a thrilling & yet sad film. As a female I don't usually like films about war but I could not look away from this one. I would highly recommend this film to anyone who enjoys a well presented & acted film. Five stars all the way.
A Film Worth The Money And Much More. You`ll Watch More Than Once.
I love and adore this film and call it the film of "When Men Are What They Are Not". It brings the story of two of the most famous Danish Resistance fighters and the story of their lives during the turbulent war years. A beautifully made film that turned into the most expensive made in Denmark with Thure and Mads playing their roles with excellence. I have researched Jorgen and Bent since watching this film and they have kept so much to the historical facts that it is a credit to the film makers. The most heart breaking scene is when Jorgen is with his wife in his car and she tells him she has met someone else. He asks who it is and she refuses to tell him. On asking why she replies with the answer that he`ll kill him. He is devastated when she tells him this and he rebukes her with he is not a killer, hence the reason why I call this the film "when men are what they are not". I recommend this film to every one to watch. The superb acting from all the cast, the atmosphere and beautiful locations make it worth watching even without no story line. The relationship that develops between the watcher of the film and the characters is one of great empathy and leaves you wanting to, like me, read and follow up finding out as much as you can about these two freedom fighters. - little though it may be. I give this a 5 star rating (well more if I could). It also has two of the most captivating actors ever Thure and the ever handsome Mads - yes I am a fan of his.Read full review
Enthralling WW2 drama, based on a true story, about two Danish Resistance heroes who cut a bloody swathe through the ranks of treacherous Danish Nazis and then go for Germans, too. Well-paced and hugely entertaining thriller stars Thure Lindhardt and Mads Mikkelsen (who you may have seen in Casino Royale, After the Wedding and Clash of the Titans). Recommended.
this was a very enjoyable movie. My only grouse was it had subtitles and I did find this anoying. I enjoy anything to do with the germans in world was 2 so it was nice to watch them catch the baddies.
