Well done character study and anti-war film. I'd rate it more highly, because it is above average, but it's essentially too morose for my taste.

Very good movie. Although it was Danish with Subtitles it was easy to follow. Very true to life.

This film by Danish director Susanne Bier portrayed two brothers who are vastly different persons. It also touched upon the atrocity of war and how it traumatizes a good, ordinary human. The story may lack some credibility at places but overall this is a watchable film.

one of the most honest and poignant films i've seen since the Serbian film "No Man's Land" which conveys the tragic costs of war in human terms. I love Denmark!

What happens when the price of saving your life levies an emotional toll (PTSD) on your future.

Je ne sais pas comment sera le remake américain qui sort dans quelques jours, mais ce film danois est excellent, les acteurs sont très bons, coté 3 mouchoirs! À voir en parallèle à la lecture de On Killing.
