The King’s Choice

The King’s Choice

I watched an interesting foreign film on Amazon Prime last weekend. The film, from Norway, is titled ‘The King’s Choice’. This excellent film tells the tale of Norway’s King Haakon VII as he dealt with Nazi Germany’s invasion of his country in April, 1940. The king was a ceremonial monarch with no power to rule, but as head of state he was still a very important figure in this drama.

There are so many World War II films that center on American, German, and British activity and so few that focus on the smaller nations that were part of the conflict. Fortunately, Amazon Prime has a pretty large catalog of foreign films. If you have an Amazon Prime account, you can watch The King’s Choice. It has English sub-titles.
