Anne-Grethe Bjarup Riis' debut feature, This Life, tells the fact-based story of the Hvidsten group, ordinary men and women from a village in eastern Jutland who received and hid agents and supplies dropped by British aircrafts during WWII, even though the Danish government had decided to cooperate with its German occupiers But in the fight for freedom, some must die so that others may live. The film was a huge hit in Danmark, reached 764 000 admissions countrywide. Helmer Bjarup Riis's great achievement is to keep the topic from playing as melodrama. She creates and maintains a tone of simple dignity and national pride.
