FLAME AND CITRON tells the true story of Danish resistance to Nazi occupation during WWII.

The acclaimed Ole Christian Madsen’s political thriller is an ultra-stylized and remarkable spy noir about the murky moral complexities of wartime. Stars Mads Mikkelsen (of AFTER THE WEDDING and CASINO ROYALE) and Thure Lindhardt.

“FLAME & CITRON, based on the lives of two actual Resistance heroes, is a taut, handsome production — the most expensive Danish film to date — and it looks like a film noir, as indeed the costumes, cars, guns and fugitives force it to.” Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times
