Movie Info

We are approaching the anniversary of a major bomb attack in Copenhagen. The outer wings have become dominant. The radicalization around the country has increased. The next parliamentary election is on the doorstep, and the strongly nationalist politician Martin Nordahl from the newly established party National Movement is predicted a historic landslide victory that can secure him the Prime Minister's post. The 19-year-old Zakaria moves slowly but surely onto a radical and dangerous track that can cost him and his family everything. On his way, he meets Ali, who fights his own battles and bears a deadly secret. While counting down to the most important choice in Denmark in recent times, Zakaria and Ali are forced towards a decisive decision that will have consequences for everyone.

Critic Reviews for Sons of Denmark (Danmarks sønner)

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (4)

However, the police sequences are clichéd, the plot risible (why hire the most inexperienced assassin to do the most important job?) and the ending far too tidy.

The operatic emphasis of the soundtrack and an overly obvious denouement further destabilize the balance in an appreciable and powerful attempt. [Full review in Spanish]

Danish film-maker Ulaa Salim's provocative debut tackles the rise of the far right with more righteous passion than many similar films this year.
