Flammen & Citronen (Flame & Citron) (2008)

Film review

“Flame & Citron”, the top-grossing 2008 Danish film, is a gangster and noir inspired film that is set during World War II. Titular characters are the most active resistance fighters who work together to assassinate Danish Nazis. The violence is unflinching but the characters certainly battle their morals on a daily basis, especially when they have to kill a woman. Told rather straight-forwardly, this intense genre piece delivers the plot twists, taut shoot outs and suspenseful moments. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a Hollywood remake.

Rating: 7/10
