Pretty good movie, ambitious and gripping story… the actors are amazing… the whole setting and the atmosphere are powerful… sometimes it’s a bit melodramatically and there are no pictures or dialogues that will last forever… though I can recommend it...
I think that Madsen did a very good work. It's to me a beautiful anti-manichean and realistic representation of this period, in an unusual context.
I give it a 4 cause i think that the movie was sometimes too politically correct. .
Noir meets war film, in a vein similar to the work that Jean-Pierre Melville did. While not quite to the level of the great Melville, it's a strong attempt to recreate that same atmosphere and tension. One of my favorites of the last decade.
