Editorial Reviews

Here's the uplifting, true-life story of how one Danish family risked their lives in the remarkable effort to save thousands of their Jewish countrymen. To protect Denmark's Jews from the horror of Nazi concentration camps, the Christian Koster family attempts to save their neighbors. Hendrik (Justin Whalin -- SERIAL MOM, TV's LOIS & CLARK: THE NEW ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN) and his doctor father (Sam Waterston -- TV's LAW & ORDER, THE KILLING FIELDS) begin the dangerous task of deceiving the Nazis and hiding Jewish families. When the Koster men must themselves go into hiding, Justin's sister and his mother (Mia Farrow -- MIAMI RHAPSODY, HUSBANDS AND WIVES) are left to face capture by the suspicious Gestapo. This gripping historical drama combines with a triumphant celebration of the human spirit for a family adventure you'll never forget.

Format: DVD
I watched this outstanding Disney made-for-tv movie many, many times, and I LOVE it!!

I first saw when it premiered on TV on the "Wonderful World of Disney" show in the spring of 1998. At that time I taped it on a VHS tape off of TV, and I loved it so much that I watched it over and over many, many times.

I should have broken the security tab on the tape, but because there were still several hours of free space left on the tape (it was taped in EP/SLP mode) I thought I would wait until the tape was filled before breaking it.

Unfortunately a couple of years later, I ended up accidentally taping over this great movie with something else, thereby erasing it. I was so upset, and so I am VERY glad to FINALLY have this movie on DVD!!

Since getting this terrific movie on DVD I have watched it so many times I have lost count!! I am also going to buy the soundtrack for it too, because the music is so moving and poignant.

Miracle at Midnight is the touching made-for-TV movie based on true events during World War II. It is set in Denmark during September 1943,(the information in the Amazon.com Editorial Reviews is either a typo or other error)and stars Sam Waterston and Mia Farrow as Dr. Karl (Waterston) and Doris(Farrow) Koster, a Christian couple living in Copenhagen with their two children, 18 year old Hendrik (Justin Whalin) and preteen Elsa (Nicola Mycroft) during the Nazi occupation of Denmark.

When Dr. Koster learns that after three years of occupation, the Nazis are going to start deporting the Jewish people in Denmark, he and his family realize that they can no longer sit by and watch their friends, neighbors and countrymen, be taken, and dragged away to Nazi concentration camps and death camps.

This movie was amazing and well acted. Mia Farrow and Sam Waterston do a great job of making us understand that the Danes protected their Jewish neighbors and friends at great risk to themselves. It is a movie that I recommend be shown in high schools. We cannot forget the past and the sacrifices that ordinary people made during this period in history.

The story of Christian Danes who risked their lives to save their Jewish fellow citizens from the Holocaust is not well known. This movie tells the story of one such Danish family, their struggles against Nazis and collaborators, and their efforts to save Danish Jews. Sam Waterston and Mia Farrow give outstanding performances. The story is gripping. More important, it will touch your heart.

I teach fifth grade, and we had finished reading "Number the Stars" which is about the Danish resistance during WWII. I wanted to be able to show the class a movie version, however, there is no movie of the novel. The storyline of "Miracle at Midnight" was very similar to the novel, and served as a nice tie in. I'm also a fan of Sam Waterston.

Format: VHS Tape
I love anything there is to do with the Holocaust and I've seen many movies, read many books on the subject. But this is one the the best vidoes on the subject I have ever seen! I love it! There is no better way to put it! Many times, Disney has been far below my standards of a good movie, but this is better that regularly high rated movie productions. Few books,or movies, successfully protray what happened to Denmark during WWII and before, if at all, but this beautifully shows how hard it was to stay alive in that time in the world, especially Europe. The actors and actresses were wonderful and convincing. This is a movie that.... I will be proud to have apart of my Holocuast book/movie collection. This is a must see for a person of any age. Thank you for such a tear-jerking, chair-gripping work of art.

I bought this DVD to show a class of 3rd and 4th graders after they had read Number the Stars. The two plots are similar, with Jews trying to escape to Sweden from Denmark During WWII. There was enough action to keep the students entertained, but historical enough for them to get an age-appropriate understanding of what was happening at the time. I would recommend for school teachers, or for children at home to learn a bit as well.

Excellent! This is a very true to life movie about what happened during world war II in Denmark. It shows how people got involved and made a difference in the lives of many others. It shows a rich history that the Danish can be proud of in saving the Jews from concentration camps. Unlike Schindler's list this movie is appropriate for preteen children to watch.

This movie was great!! However, it was not classroom friendly. I was hoping to be able to watch this movie with my students after reading Number the Stars and studying the Holocaust for 9 weeks. Unfortunately, the movie was a little too graphic. It was by no means inappropriate, but it is not something I would expose my students to without permission from their parents. I teach 5th grade.
