THE BOMBARDMENT

THE BOMBARDMENT

THE BOMBARDMENT is a feature film about the great tragedy that hit Denmark on 21st of March, 1945. Royal Air Force’s successful raid on the Gestapo headquarters in Shell House, in Copenhagen, went fatally wrong when the bombers struck The French School by mistake. More than 120 people were killed, 86 of them children. And behind the statistics is a moving tale.

 

Ole Bornedal has created a strong and moving story about the fateful incident, as seen through the eyes of the children at the school, the nuns, the young, captive freedom fighters, and the attacking airmen.

 

This is both a strong, intimate story, and an epic tale of life during the war.

 

In the battle for peace, civilians and innocents always pay the highest price.
