Thanks to Metrodome, we have three (3) copies of the critically acclaimed war epic “Flame & Citron” to give away to three lucky winners. The film will be officially released on DVD on June 29, but head on below to see how you can win a free DVD today.
Copenhagen 1944. As World War II approaches its dying days, two hit men for the Danish freedom fighters codenamed ‘Flame’ (Thure Lindhardt) and ‘Citron’ (Mads Mikkelsen) secretly put their lives on the line to fight the Nazis.
The fearless and uncompromising Flame is a confirmed anti-fascist and dreams of the day when the group will assemble and openly launch an armed counterattack at the occupying power. The more sensitive family man, Citron, used to work primarily as a driver for Flame, but now finds himself becoming more deeply involved in the group’s work.
When their immediate superior, Aksel Winther, orders them into action against two German officers, events suddenly spiral out of control. In the fall out doubts about their leadership begin to surface, and the pair come to feel that they are on shaky moral ground. Desperate, disillusioned and with a sense of having been betrayed, they decide only to trust each other and embark on one final mission – to assassinate the much feared and hated chief of the Gestapo, Hoffmann.
The film is based on incredible actual events and eyewitness accounts from some of the people who experienced Bent Faurschou-Hviid (“Flame”) and Jørgen Haagen Schmith (“Citron”) at very close range.
