Flammen & Citronen

Ole Christian Madsen Denmark, 2008

Luke Andrews's rating of the film Flame & Citron

A refreshing take on an overpopulated genre. I detect a lack of purpose in regards to the narrative, but chose to see that as a deliberate artistic masterstroke that reflects the protagonist's alienation, both within their nazi controlled country, and within the left wing rebellion fighting against it. From somebody who has grown a bit tired of WW2 films - Good Job.
