Metz cares not to moralise or cut the footage to assume any particular viewpoint, instead he merely conveys the confused mania of war, tragically capturing the anguish of the frustrated civilians caught between soldiers and the Taliban.
Honesty is rare in films, even documentaries. So it's particularly thrilling to find that Janus Metz's story of Danish soldiers in Afghanistan doesn't pretend that they don't find war to be the most exciting thing they could ever experience
