Watch Armadillo (2010) using Stremio

The fact that Janus Metz films are not like the national average of cinematography in America is no longer surprising. Most movie, even the greatest ones, evaporate like a fog when you return to the real world, leaving their memories behind, but the facts quickly wasted. This is not :). The hollywood, cannot boast with a large number of better movies. I was afraid that knowledge of the plot would in some way take away the joy of watching, but it did not happen. Rich dialogues, which are the essence of this film, arouse respect, especially in the context of today's production. The story can be interpreted in many ways, I think the Armadillo is even too short. Watch Armadillo online or download it to your computer.... Show more

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.
