Armadillo 2010 15

100 mins Denmark Director. Janus Metz

Janus Metz's documentary about Danish troops and Afghani civilians in and around a UK-Danish base in Helmand Province combines balanced observation, urgent reportage and sensitive, compassionate insights into the dreadful toll taken on all - but particularly on the young and inexperienced - by war. Wisely eschewing open polemics, Metz lets the brutality and madness speak for themselves
