This stunningly good depiction of the impact of conscription on Jonathan, his friends and family, is a compelling combination of straightforward realism, deadpan surrealism, and domestic tragedy that takes you deep into the reality-altering nature of a society at war. You will be talking about this haunting film for a long time.
“this is award-winning filmmaking on a fearless level.” Variety
“a fierce, urgent, unflinching picture.” Guardian
