Riveting movie, actors, period detail, humanity.
In the early morning of April 9th 1940 the Danish army is alerted. The Germans have crossed the border; Denmark is at war against Europe's strongest army. At the Southern border the Danish homeguard are ordered out to hold back the forces until the Danish reinforcements can be mobilised. In the fatal hours, we follow second lieutenant Sand (Pilou Asbæk) and his small and inexperienced band as the first Danish soldiers meet the enemy in combat on that fateful day... April 9th 1940.
Once again iTunes this film only to buy not rent don't you understand there is some people out there that don't want to watch films twice therefore we rent dahhhh!
Thoughtful and superbly acted drama about one of the less well known theaters of war. Don't expect a bloodbath, but you get a real sense that every life counted. Reccomended.
