You can feel the shadow of Steven Spielberg’s Munich hovering over Flame & Citron, a Danish drama of resistance fighters in Copenhagen during WWII. Flame (Thure Lindhardt), a boyish redhead, and his short-fused right-hand man, Citron (the terrific scowler Mads Mikkelsen, from Casino Royale), are underground assassins who walk a tightrope between justice and vengeance. They have signed on to kill Danish collaborators, but they’re ensnared by the murky loyalties of the resistance itself. Director Ole Christian Madsen combines sharp scenes of moral inquiry with a few too many functional, oldfangled espionage twists. (Also available on cable via on demand) B
