Kongens Nei

Erik Poppe Norway, 2016

the_mentaculus's rating of the film The King's Choice

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.
