      Claudia Puig FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) A banal marital melodrama. Mar 26, 2021 Full Review Peter Rainer FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) It's a weird movie; it should really be about the whole picture and not just this guy's not-very-interesting love life. Mar 26, 2021 Full Review Nicolas Rapold New York Times Rosendahl's framing complicates any "great man" narrative of the period, and shows how the energies of public and private worlds course back and forth. Mar 25, 2021 Full Review Audrey Fox JumpCut Online This tale of Danish resistance through diplomacy is inherently uncinematic, and neither the director nor the actors are up to the task of making it so. It is, unfortunately, a dull affair, and is likely to bore all but the most ardent World War II buffs. Aug 23, 2021 Full Review Javier Cortijo Cinemanía (Spain) The outcome could not be more Nordic. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 2.5/5 Jun 1, 2021 Full Review Todd Jorgenson Cinemalogue Given the story's inherent shortage of action, the film probably could have generated more consistent suspense with a tighter focus. At least Thomsen's portrayal is convincing. Apr 21, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews
