Watch 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....

Hi people, I want to present you, movie, which I consider the best movie ever made. Until now Armadillo is the best online movie I've seen this year. That's really great if a movie can keep me focused for the whole duration, that's what Armadillo is doing. In my opinion, some of the actors roles were just a masterpieces. It's taken me multiple rewatches and a lot of hours spent on the wiki to understand everything. It is one of the few films of the past years that deserves to be seen multiple times. You can now watch this movie online for free.... Show more
