Janus Metz: Armadillo/5

The news agency AFP reports tonight from CANNES: A controversial Danish movie set in Afghanistan and a first feature from a Vietnamese director on Thursday scooped awards in Cannes' Critics Week section…

"Armadillo", about the growing cynicism and adrenaline addiction of young soldiers in the battlefield, won the top prize for Janus Metz. Shot on the Afghan front, it is the first documentary ever chosen to compete for the Critics' Week prize. Described as a journey into soldiers' minds, the movie made wars on the home front this week after showing Danish troops claiming to have "liquidated" Taleban fighters wounded in combat. The army has called for an inquiry after parliamentarians who saw it this week dubbed it "Denmark's Vietnam."
