Armadillo

SD

In February of 2009, a group of Danish soldiers accompanied by documentarian Janus Metz arrived at Armadillo, an army base in the southern Afghan province of Helmand. Metz and cinematographer Lars Skree spent six months following the lives of young soldiers situated less than a kilometer from Taliban positions. The result of their work is a gripping and highly authentic war drama that was justly awarded the Grand Prix de la Semaine de la Critique at the 2010 Cannes film festival. But it also provoked furious debate in Denmark concerning the controversial behavior of certain Danish soldiers during a shoot-out with Taliban fighters. The film-makers repeatedly risked their lives shooting this tense, brilliantly edited, and visually sophisticated probe into the psychology of young men in the midst of a senseless war whose victims are primarily local villagers. Yet more disturbing than scenes in which Taliban bullets whiz past their cameras is the footage of the young soldiers as each tries, in his own way, to come to terms with putting his life constantly on the line....

Review

Movies made by Janus Metz are always worth to watch, it's not different this time. It is a pleasure for me to have a good movie, a few intelligent speakers, and these collective speeches reveal the central idea of ÔÇőÔÇőthe movie. I know it gets a lot of stick for being the mainstream popular movie, but honestly I can not think of anything wrong with the movie online. There are so many iconic scenes and dialogues throughout the movie that have become legendary in our culture. Armadillo is undoubtedly the production that once again confirmed the artistry of Janus Metz and his great talent. You don't need to be a Documentary lover to enjoy this movie. Feel free to play the movie online or download it to your computer.... Show more
