Operation Cobra

Lasse Spang Olsen, Denmark, 1995

93 min.DK/FeatureChildren's films

With special effects and suspense, but with the portrayal of a closely knit suburban community at its core, this is the story of a terrorist group's attempt to launch a missile attack against a motorcade of international heads of state. The terrorists have chosen a forest ranger's home to prepare for the attack; the family is taken hostage. The son, Frederik, with the help of friends, manages to defeat the terrorists by guts, wits and technological know-how (communication via Internet among other things).

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste. Se listen over prioriterede festivaler.
