En dag i oktober: Directed by Kenneth Madsen, Kenneth Kort Madsen. With D.B. Sweeney, Kelly Wolf, Tovah Feldshuh, Daniel Benzali. This story, based on fact, is about the movement of Danish Jews out of Denmark to neutral Sweden in the 1940’s. It focuses on a single family and tells of their involvement with the underground and of their own, initially reluctant, participation in sabotaging a munitions plant, and of the daughter’s affection for one of the movements leaders.

“I found the characters unconvincing.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI wanted to care about them, but too often they behaved unwisely (taking the British cigarettes out of the house where others could see them) or witlessly for me to care about them.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThey struck me as characters written generations after the events portrayed, who knew the truth of what went on, but conveyed none of the feeling of an occupied people in time of war. Their actions seemed disconnected and forced for the sake of the plot, and frequently–all too frequently–failed to ring true.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThere are stories to be told of that time and place, but this just dragged on and on…and became predictable. It was like enduring the last incarnation of Titanic…please, let this end…soon…but it doesnu0026#39;t.”
