Ole Bornedal Helms Denmark's Most Expensive Television Series Ever, Check First Stills From Period War Piece 1864

Founder and Editor; Toronto, Canada (@AnarchistTodd)
Danish director Ole Bornedal - much loved in these parts for films such as Deliver Us From Evil and The Substitute - is sure to make a major splash across Europe with his current project, though he's moving from big screens to small to do so as the director of 1864, a period set television series revolving around the Battle of Dybbøl which stands to be Denmark's most expensive television production ever.

"1864" was a fateful year for Denmark. The nation lost the Battle of Dybbøl to the Prussians and, in turn, two thirds of its land and population, 5,000 troops and a good measure of self-respect. The ignominious defeat became a national trauma that can still make Danes feel small.
With a cast that includes Sidse Babett Knudsen, Pilou Asbæk, Søren Malling, Jens Frederik Sætter-Lassen,  Nicolas Bro, Bent Mejding, Lars Mikkelsen and Søren Pilmark, Zlatko Buric, Jakob Oftebro, Rainer Bock, Barnaby Metschurat, Heikko Deutschmann, Barbara Flynn and James Fox a whopping twenty six images from the show have recently been released. Check them in the gallery below.
