Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This low-key wartime drama concentrates on the plight of Danish Jews upon the Nazi takeover. The world now knows that Denmark behaved honorably and courageously in refusing to automatically turn over its Jews to the death camps, but the film's hero, played by Ove Sprogoe, at first vacillates in his commitment to protect his Jewish neighbors. Happily, Sprogoe joins his fellow Danes in smuggling 7000 Jews to the safety of Sweden. The Only Way covers its familiar ground with nuance and spontaneity.
