Netflix has picked up the distribution rights to WWII movie The Bombardment or as it’s otherwise known The Shadow In My Eye (Skyggen i mit øje in Danish) and will release the movie in March 2022.

The movie was first released theatrically in Denmark in October 2021. It will be available on Netflix in other countries starting March 9, 2022. It will soon be available in all major countries, including the United States of America and Great Britain.

Freemantle’s Miso Film produced the movie with Ole Bornedal writing and directing. Bornedal, a well-known Danish director, is perhaps most famous for his titles Nightwatch and Deliver Us From Evil.

Although it has few reviews, the current IMDb rating is 7.4.

A few of the names featured in the film are familiar to you for their roles in English-language titles.

Alex Høgh Andersen (plays Ivar in Vikings) headlines the cast as Frederik.

Also among the cast is Danica Curcic (Silent Heart), Susse Wold (The Hunt), Caspar Phillipson (Mission: Impossible – Fallout), Bertram Bisgaard, Ester Birch Bech, Ella Josephine Lund Nilsson, and Fanny Leander Bornedal.

Netflix has chosen to change the name of Bombardment, as stated previously. It could also be due to similar titles such as In The Shadow of the Moon or In The Shadow of Iris on Netflix.

How does The Bombardment work?

Here’s what you can expect from The Bombardment:

“On March 21st, 1945, the British Royal Air Force set out on a mission to bomb Gestapo’s headquarters in Copenhagen. The raid had fatal consequences as some of the bombers accidentally targeted a school and more than 120 people were killed, 86 of whom were children.”

Netflix offers multiple sub-options and dubs. You can expect to find the original Danish audio, as well as the dubs for English and French, Portuguese, Polish, French, and Polish.

Netflix acquired The Bombardment, one of many World War II films in recent years. Last year, Netflix notably acquired the Dutch movie The Forgotten Battle which starred Harry Potter’s Tom Felton. In January 2022, Netflix released its own movie Munich – The Edge of War and later in 2022, many regions will see the release of Operation Mincemeat.
