A musician and his family make a frantic escape from Nazi-occupied Denmark in this white-knuckled Danish drama. Enjoying the nightlife in 1943 Copenhagen, jazz guitarist Arne Itkin (David Dencik, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) initially dismisses his wife Miriam’s (Danica Curcic, Wallender) concerns about rumors of the round-up and deportation of Danish Jews. A night raid, however, forces the couple to flee with their young son to the fishing village of Gilleleje, where refugees await passage to Sweden by boat. As the Gestapo and Danish collaborators close in, the family puts its fate in the hands of strangers whose allegiances and motives are not clear. Director Nicolo Donato, whose grandfather was one of the ferrymen, masterfully ratchets up the tension, heightening the suspense until the very last frame.
