April 9th is a 2015 Danish war movie about the German occupation in 1940. The movie focuses on a small Danish bicycle unit under the command of Second Lieutenant Sand (Pilou Asbæk). On the 8th of April, his unit is sent to the Danish-German border. This very night, the German Army begins its invasion. Despite the low prospects for success, Sand is given the order to stop the German troops until further reinforcements can arrive. The 2016 movie The King's Choice describes the events of the Norwegian occupation.
