Armadillo 2007 NR

Amazon Instant Video

(7) IMDb 7.6/10

The first documentary ever chosen to compete in the International Critics' Week at Cannes (where it won the grand prize), Janus Metz's Armadillo follows a platoon of Danish soldiers on a six-month tour of Afghanistan in 2009. An intimate, visually stunning account of both the horror and growing cynicism of modern warfare, the film premiered at the top of the box office in Denmark, provoking a national debate over government policy and the rules of engagement.

I found Armadillo to be a well done documentary of the Danish contribution to the war against the Taliban in Afghanistan. For the most part, it was fair and was not biased either pro or anti-war. The film does a good job of realistically portraying what service in Afghanistan is like. The filmmaker does take some liberties in editing and filmography which make it seem slightly less like a documentary and more like a fictional film. However, that was not a problem for me, and it was easy to tell it was all too real. As both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars were American-led, it was actually nice for a change to see what part other participants are playing such as the Danish. This is the type of film not appropriate for all audiences as it is gritty, violent and profane.

Definitely not for the "family" or the women that have men overseas. It was a cut throat, factual movie about what our military faces over in the middle east. This is the part of war that most folks do NOT want to see or acknowledge. I served in the Marines and I'm glad I saw this movie.

One of the better documentaries on those fighting overseas. Especially on foreign military forces. I still would like more of an ending though.

Excellent documentary. As an Afghanistan veteran who fought in the exact same area, it was very interesting to re-live those experiences. Well filmed, and it takes you through the highs and lows of deployment. A must watch for the public.
