KurskIn a series of historical events, the film talks about the 2000 K-141 Kursk submarine disaster and the government neglect that followed. It is a real tragedy where sailors struggle to survive. On the other hand, their families resist the dilemma of political obstacles and the impossible opportunities to save them from the catastrophe that history has endured.

Critic Reviews of "Kursk"VarietySeptember 13, 2018
"Kursk" occasionally lands an emotive blow but only in its more fictionalized stretches, while it pulls its punches with the thorniest and most provocative elements of the real story...GuardianSeptember 07, 2018
It's a heartbreaking, troubling film about men whose lives were cruelly deprioritised and whose families remain ever altered as a result.Hollywood ReporterSeptember 07, 2018
A competent, by-the-numbers action melodrama...EspinofMarch 04, 2019
A sober and balanced film with potent claustrophobic tension. [Full Review in Spanish]South China Morning PostFebruary 20, 2019
Thomas Vinterberg adapts one of the more controversial accounts of the tragedy, but strikes an even keel between humanising the doomed seamen and demonising the high command who left them to die.Cinema AxisDecember 16, 2018
Kursk is a captivating and heartbreaking look at how a government let its people down.Fresh FictionDecember 15, 2018
Moments of suspense are abound here, but not abundant.El Mundo (Spain)December 07, 2018
It is a perfect reconstruction of a historical episode that is almost as current. [Full Review in Spanish]Cinemanía (Spain)December 04, 2018
On the mainland, the struggle of women, parents and children is also tense and intense. [Director Thomas] Vinterberg goes from one to the other, trying to give them the same weight. [Full review in Spanish]CinegarageOctober 08, 2018
Vinterberg returns to the aspect ratio of 4: 3 to tell us that his speech is over, that we have returned to the oppressive state to answer the questions. Smart move, bright but disturbing. [Full Review in Spanish]What She SaidOctober 05, 2018
Vinterberg's superb direction makes this a moving.Little White LiesSeptember 20, 2018
Does put a more realist slant on proceedings. But the clunky dialogue, clichéd relationships and characterisation of every character undermine all these efforts.
