Synopsis
Into The Darkness (AKA De Forbandede År) is an epic family saga set against the backdrop of the most dramatic and testing period in recorded history. 1940’s Denmark. World War 2 is raging throughout Europe, expanding out of control with no end in sight. Denmark, while declaring herself neutral at the start of the war, is occupied by Hitler’s Third Reich in 1940, the consequences of which drive a wedge between members of the Skov family, particularly Karl (James Bond’s Jesper Christensen), the successful owner of a vast electronics factory and his son Aksel (future star Mads Reuther), who reacts against the increasing oppression and persecution of Jews and communists by joining the rising resistance movement. Directed by Anders Refn, whose contribution to Danish cinema is unmatched, and produced by Lene Borglum and Nicholas Winding Refn’s Space Rocket Nation, Into The Darkness sat at the top of the Danish box office for 4 weeks in January 2020, grossing almost 300,000 admissions, outperforming major studio titles such as 1917, Bad Boys For Life, JoJo Rabbit, Doolittle, Knives Out and Ford v Ferrari....more
