‘9.April’ is historically accurate, says Politiken
The Danish newspaper ‘Politiken’ has written an article all about the new film starring Pilou Asbaek, 9.April. Here’s a translation:
Claus Bundgaard Christensen, historian at the Roskilde University with a major in WWII is enthusiastic about the conveying of history in the film.
“It is in many ways a hyper realistic depiction of what the Danish soldiers experienced in Sonderjylland, the day the Germans invaded. The film shows how the Danish soldiers fought on isolated islands. They had no communication with each other, while the Germans constantly had radio contact. The Danes also did not have a clue what was going on in Copenhagen or in their barracks, and that is what the movie portrays well ”
Politken also reviewed all of Pilou Asbaek’s films, which you can find here
