On the 9th of April 1940, German troops invade Oslo. The king of Norway is faced with a choice that will change his nation forever. An epic film about the real events that turned a brave man into the people’s king.

A political film about the meeting of an unstoppable force and an immovable object. The film is not as effective when it steers away from King Haakon, but I did find an equally fascinating character in the peace-loving and neutral (Nazi) German ambassador, caught between the two deeply opposing forces, and his own conscience.
