Critic Reviews of "A War (Krigen)"Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.comMarch 17, 2016
The haunting and stark A War may be [Tobias Lindholm's] most striking and effective work yetSan Diego ReaderFebruary 26, 2016
Writer-director Tobias Lindholm's latest is a microcosmic and finely wrought war story in which everyone has their reasons.Detroit NewsFebruary 26, 2016
Ethically challenging and occasionally brutal, "A War" explores the dicey nature of decisions made in the heat of battle and the grim consequences that may follow.Seattle TimesFebruary 25, 2016
It's intense without becoming simplistic, and the actors stay focused as the viewpoints shift.Chicago ReaderFebruary 25, 2016
Only in the second half, after the commander is accused of a war crime and returns home to stand trial, do these two worlds merge and their respective realities clash, with sobering results.Boston GlobeFebruary 25, 2016
[It] may ... be among the best war movies of all time.Salt Lake TribuneDecember 31, 2016
With intense and contained performances, particularly by Asbaek and Novotny, A War depicts a moral dilemma that is as complicated as it frustrating.Sunday Times (UK)December 19, 2016
[In its early stages,] it is absorbing and occasionally tense. Its second half, however, is disappointing.MovieMailDecember 13, 2016
If A War can't, at the last, land the gutpunch of its predecessor, it scores points enough to provide a worthy watch -- and to confirm its writer-director as among the preeminent agonised consciences in contemporary world cinema.Movie HabitDecember 12, 2016
Deeply troubling and appropriately ambiguous, A War is a fine and sobering movie.Antagony & EcstasyDecember 05, 2016
Pilou Asbæk is extraordinary, a bundle of tense, scared misery and self-hatred.Brooklyn MagazineNovember 29, 2016
In human terms, A War's moral calculus might seem a bit off, but the point certainly hits home -- in the age of "precision" remote-controlled weaponry and guerrilla ambushes, war crimes have become all too easy to commit.
