Director: Ole Christian Madsen
“It's a taut, complex thriller, but beware: in Flame & Citron, truth is far bleaker than fiction.” - Independent
Copenhagen 1944. As the war winds down, it seems the Nazi regime's days are numbered. For the Danish resistance fighters code-named Flame and Citron, it means time is running out to exact vengeance via the systematic assassination of Danish informers.
As the patriots step up their campaign of retribution, the moral surety of their actions no longer seems quite so black and white. Facing retaliation from the agents of the Third Reich, Flame and Citron will need all their wits about them to survive.
Based on a true story, this fast-paced thriller from Danish director Ole Christian Madsen (Prague) stars Mads Mikkelsen (Casino Royale; Exit, MIFF 07)
