Mother at War
Erna lives in Bramstrup in southern Jutland with her educationally subnormal son Kalle, whom Erna has always taken good care of. When 16-year-old Kalle is called in to fight the First World War, Erna sees no choice but to disguise herself as a male soldier and follow her son all the way to the front line. Mother at War is a Danish film based on Erling Jepsen's acclaimed novel with the same name. Actor Ulrich Thomsen received an award in the category of best actor at the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival for his participation in the film.
