Like his 2012 film A Hijacking, Danish writer-director Tobias Lindholm’s drama A War (an Academy Award nominee) explores the theme of moral compromise with an uncomfortably astringent honesty. In the heat of combat, a commanding officer, Claus, makes the sort of risky judgment call that war demands every day. When that choice claims civilian lives, Claus de-scends into guilt, unsure that he should even mount a defense for himself in the martial trial that follows. But nothing is ethically clear-cut in Lindholm’s take on the high cost of conflict; ‘justice’ is a slippery concept when a soldier might be able to do the most good by lying to exonerate himself from a war crime. NY Times. (In Danish) (115 minutes).
