Shadows In My Eyes

Ole Bornedal, Denmark, 2020

107 min.DK/FeatureHistorical drama

The film is about the great tragedy that hit Denmark on 21 March, 1945. The British Royal Air Force attack on Gestapo Headquarters in Copenhagen was successful, but also resulted in a fatal tragedy, as they mistakenly bombed the French School as well, resulting in more than 120 casualties, of which 86 were children. The film goes behind the statistics and tells the story of 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. In the battle for peace, civilians and innocents always pay the highest price.
