Produced to mark the tenth anniversary of Denmark's liberation from Nazi occupation, this taut thriller tells the harrowing story of two young resistance workers, trained in England and parachuted into blacked-out occupied Denmark. One of the boys (John Wittig) is wounded during a dangerous raid and seeks shelter at a vicarage. The vicar's lovely daughter (Astrid Villaume) nurses him back to health, but their burgeoning love is played out under the constant threat of disclosure and eventual punishment. A sober and, at times, surprisingly realistic melodrama, Der Kom En Dag features then-unknown director Gabriel Axel (Babette's Feast [1987]) in a small role as a vicious Danish Nazi.
