Flame and Citron is a 2008 political thriller directed by Ole Christian Madsen and based on true events. Set in Copenhagen in 1944, the film follows the beginning of the end of World War II. Bent Faurschou-Hviid (Thure Lindhardt) is nicknamed "Flame" because of his vivid red hair. J''rgen Haagen Schmith (Mads Mikkelsen) is known as "Citron" because he used to work for the car company Citro''n. Flame and Citron work for the Holger Danske resistance group, using their wits and cunning to battle against the Nazi presence and their own Danish countrymen who have defected to the Nazi side. Living dangerously, the two friends assassinate traitors and Nazi officials, quickly becoming the heroes of the resistance movement. Their courage and morals are tested, however, when they receive orders to assassinate Ketty Selmer (Stine Stengade), Flame's lover. Flame and Citron must consider how far they will go for their cause.
