an unusual film about moral dilemma's in war
17 May 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

"Stella's oorlog" (= Dutch for "Stella's war"), deals with a moral dilemma a soldier can encounter when engaged in war.

Set in the very actuality of a Dutch Army combat group in Afghanistan, this well-made movie gradually works out its theme. When the final credits are shown, the viewer fully understands what happened in 2008 in Afghanistan. And how its moral implications affect the military participants.

"Stella's oorlog" is carried by its female lead Maartje Remmers, a renowned Dutch theater actress. She plays Stella, wife and sister of two soldiers involved.

This film is unusual by its theme, as well as by the honesty the theme is treated. Its plot strongly focuses on revealing the truth.
