Armadillo Online

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....

Armadillo - one of the best Documentary movies, I ever seen. I will grant that my expectations were very low before seeing it... Nowadays, fresh movies entering the cinemas, do not have 'something' what this movie got. The mood is complemented by well-chosen music. The movie with best cast ever, best directing, best storyline. Sure there are classic cartoons which everyone like, and they are great. But Armadillo is just non stop awesome from start to finish. Full movie in HD quality is free to watch here on this website.... Show more
