The Invisible Cell 2009


The Invisible Cell is an authentic story about a group of young idealists who lose their grip on reality. As they harden under the demands of a greater political cause, they put their own and others’ lives increasingly at risk. It all ends in 1988 with the biggest heist in the history of Denmark and the death of a 22-year-old policeman. In the film we meet the activists and the police officers that for many years were chasing the gang, yet failed to intervene before the tragic shooting in central Copenhagen.
