Flame and Citron

'Flame & Citron' tells the story of two heroes of the Danish resistance to the Nazi occupation, but it is far from your typical World War II period piece. Instead, it plays like some unholy, brilliant marriage between spy noir and comic book movie. Filled to the brim with assassination plots, double-crosses, larger-than-life villains, and big, dramatic gestures, this is not for viewers who like their movies timid and sedate. And under that grand facade, the film grapples with tough moral questions regarding war, occupation, survival, and ideology. Mads Mikkelsen, Stine Stengade and Thure Lindhardt star.
