Winner of the 2010 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize for documentary, RESTREPO chronicles the deployment of a platoon of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan's Korengal Valley, one of the most dangerous postings in the U.S. military. The movie focuses on 15 soldiers based at "Outpost Restrepo," named after a platoon medic killed early in the deployment. Filmed by author Sebastian Junger ("War") and award-winning photographer Tim Hetherington, RESTREPO takes viewers on their own 90-minute deployment, without comment or agenda. This is war, full stop. A National Geographic Entertainment release.

SpeechlessI’m a film fanatic. I’ve seen pretty much every picture at one time or another. There’s never been a documentary or feature that impacted me to this degree. Not even close. It felt like someone physically punched my in the gut. To characterize what Tim Hetherington and Sebastian Junger accomplished here as simply a movie really doesn’t do it justice. This was an experience. It’s one I will never forget and one that I don’t want to forget. It reinforced my disdain for war while dramatically enhancing the empathy and understanding I have of the soldiers who fight in these horrific conflicts..Score: 5/5

Well worth your timeIt was interesting to watch a war documentary that focused on the men in the combat zone with no news footage of politicians, talking heads or anything other than interviews with the guys on the ground. Definitely worth watching for a fresh take on a controversial war..Score: 5/5

ObservationsI would have liked to watch a documentary like this during the time of the war in Iraq, years ago because it was all very mysterious. It looks like they only had one type of gun, and saw a bit of technology, yet the soldiers were just using their rifle scopes to look for enemies. You would think that there would be more useful tactical technology available for that type of combat. They did have a fairly organized camp. There was too much swearing rather than a consenus about the job but I mean the general did ask some questions, it was okay, yet I myself wouldn't feel that good there, not unless the team had the spirit more for themselves. I don't think that I like hearing about hearts and minds, but they should just be a team and they didn't want to stay for the extra thousand dollars? Boy is that ever nuts. I'm happy to see a military deployment documentary, and it was enlightening..Score: 4/5

Restrepo tarjoaa kohahduttavan näkymän Afganistanin sodan todellisuuteen. Raskas ruumiillinen työ, talebanin tulitus ja unenpuute ovat yhdysvaltalaisten joukkojen arkipäivää. Tim Hetherington ja Sebastian Junger asettuivat vuonna 2008 sotajoukon kanssa Korengalin laaksoon. Asemapaikka, jonka sotilaat nimesivät taistelussa kuolleen ystävänsä mukaan Restepoksi, osoittautui yhdeksi sodan vaarallisimmista. Ohjaajat näyttävät joukkojen vankan yhteishengen ja kummallisen huumorin, jolla lievitetään ahdistusta siitä, ettei voi tietää sitä, kuka ystävistä palaa seuraavaksi kotiin arkussa. Elokuva on kuitenkin ennen kaikkea sarja vahvoja henkilökuvia. Muun muassa Justin, Kevin, Jason ja Steve – he kaikki alkavat vähitellen tuntua läheisiltä. Restrepo on sotadokumentaari, joka ei haastattele yhtäkään diplomaattia, vaan antaa reilusti äänen niille, jotka osallistuvat käytännön sotatoimiin.

Restrepo dokumentiert den gefährlichen Alltag einiger amerikanischer Soldaten, die auf einem Außenposten im östlichen Afghanistan stationiert sind. Der Film teilt die Perspektive der Männer, zeigt ihre Angst, Kameradschaft und Verzweiflung. Auf dem Sundance Film Festival wurde Restrepo als bester Dokumentarfilm mit dem großen Preis der Jury ausgezeichnet.

Um pelotão de soldados dos Estados Unidos é instalado no Vale Korengal, no Afeganistão. O documentário se concentra num posto avançado com 15 homens chamado "Restrepo", nome de um médico do pelotão que foi morto em ação. Ele foi considerado um dos mais perigosos postos militares dos Estados Unidos.

Crónica de las vidas de un pelotón de soldados estadounidenses que combaten en el valle más peligroso de Afganistán, llamado Korengal. El documental se centra en un remoto puesto formado por 15 hombres llamado Restrepo, un lugar conocido por su extrema peligrosidad donde se produce una quinta parte de los combates que ocurren en todo el país. Sebastian Junger, periodista, y Tim Hetherington, un reputado fotógrafo ganador de varios premios World Press Photo, pasaron varios meses empotrados con los marines estadounidenses en el valle, consiguiendo unas imágenes impactantes de la dura realidad del conflicto.

Tout sauf un document de propagande pour la guerre en Afghanistan, Restrepo, qui tire son titre du nom d'un jeune de 20 ans mort en mission, suit un bataillon de soldats américains pendant 15 mois dans l'horreur quotidienne.

Il giornalista Junger e il fotoreporter Hetherington hanno trascorso un anno in Afghanistan insieme al Secondo plotone, 503rd Infantry Regiment, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team, dell'Esercito degli Stati Uniti, documentandone fedelmente la vita quotidiana in uno sperduto avamposto nella valle di Korengal.

Restrepo egy távoli, elszigetelt amerikai támaszpont az afganisztáni Korengal-völgyben. Állítólag az egyik legveszélyesebb hely, ahol jelenleg amerikai katona szolgál, beszédes módon a nevét is egy bevetés közben megölt katonai orvosról kapta. A rendkívüli helyről most rendkívüli dokumentumfilm készült: Sebastian Junger és Tim Hetherington haditudósítók kísérleti alkotásában nincsenek interjúk, nem érvelnek tábornokok és diplomaták, a kamerák egyetlen pillanatra se hagyják el a halálos Korengal-völgyet - a filmben csak háború van, csak a nyers valóság van, csak a Restrepóban szolgáló szakasz kőkemény, kendőzetlen élete van. Sebastian Junger és Tim Hetherington a díjnyertes filmben nem ítélkezik, nem magyaráz, egyszerűen csak mindent megmutat - a konklúzió levonását meghagyva a nézőknek.

שנה בחייה של יחידת לוחמים אמריקאים באפגניסטן, בסרט תיעודי שזכה בפרס השופטים הגדול בפסטיבל סאנדנס. הבמאיםעיתונאים סבסטיאן יונגר וטים הת'רינגטון התלוו ליחידת "רסטרפו" (ע"ש רופא היחידה שנהרג) במהלך פעילות מבצעית של 15 חודשים בעמק קורנגאל (ב-2007), שנמצא במחוז קונאר שבצפון-מזרח המדינה. הסרט עוקב אחר שגרת יומם, תוך שילוב של ראיונות מהתקופה שלאחר השהות הארוכה, כשהחיילים שבו הביתה. החיים תחת אש בליווי צמוד ונדיר, תוך דגש על החוויה האישית ולא על האספקטים הפוליטיים.

Regisseurs Hetherington en Junger brengen een jaar door met het 2de bataljon van het Amerikaanse Leger dat gelegen is in één van Afghanistans gevaarlijkste valleien. De documentaire geeft inzicht en laat meeleven hoe de strijd gewonnen moet worden door keihard werk, dodelijke vuurgevechten en onderlinge vriendschappen terwijl de eenheid de Taliban moet terugdringen.

Pełnometrażowy dokument opowiadający o plutonie amerykańskich żołnierzy stacjonujących w Dolinie Korangal w Afganistanie. Ukazuje 15 osobową placówkę "Restrepo", której nazwa pochodzi od plutonu medycznego, który w całości zginął podczas wojny. To miejsce jest jednym z najniebiezpieczniejszych stanowisk w armii Stanów Zjedynoczonych. Zamiarem twórców filmu, było ukazanie doświadczeń żołnierzy uczestniczących w walce. Nie pojawiają się wywiady z dyplomatami i generałami. Kamera nie opuszcza doliny, czyniąc z widza uczestnika wojny w Afganistanie.

Режисьорите Себастиан Юнгер и Тим Хедерингтън прекарват година заедно с американски взвод в Афганистан. С потресаващи факти и спиращи дъха кадри те представят ежедневието на войниците в един от най-силните документални филми на 2010-та. Лентата е отличена с Голямата награда на журито на фестивала в Сънданс. Стартирал с едва две филмови копия на 27 юни, в средата на август филмът вече е разпространяван с 52 копия, които му носят приходи от над 1,3 милиона долара.

National Geographic nás po několikáté zavede do nebezpečných končin tohoto světa. Restrepo nespustí oči z amerických vojáků v afghánském údolí Korangal, ve kterém hlavní tvůrci filmu strávili rok svého života. Film amerického žurnalisty Sebastiana Jungera a britského fotografa Tima Hetheringtona získal cenu poroty za Nejlepší dokumentární film v Sundance.

Um pelotão de soldados norte-americanos fica estacionado um ano num dos vales do Afeganistão.

本片紀錄一排美國士兵在阿富汗卡林哥﹝Korengal Valley﹞的佈署情形,並主要著墨在一支15人的警戒部隊,他們稱自己為「Restrepo」,以紀念一名在行動中喪生的醫護兵。這裡是美軍駐紮點中公認最危險的地方,而本片以完全實驗性的方式拍攝,導演將攝影機設置在山谷之中,並且完全沒有訪問任何將軍或是外交官等人,希望讓所有觀眾彷彿置身於90分鐘的軍事佈署行動之中。

Which Way Is the Front Line from Here? The Life and Time of Tim HetheringtonDocumentary2013

On April 20, 2011, shortly after the release of his documentary “Restrepo” — and only six weeks after attending the Oscar® ceremony as a nominee — photographer and filmmaker Tim Hetherington was killed by mortar fire in the city of Misrata, Libya, where he’d been covering the civil war. He bled out in the back of a pick-up truck while being raced to the hospital, comforted by a Spanish photojournalist who was holding his hand and trying to keep him awake. Those moments ended a brilliant ten-year career in which Hetherington not only covered such dramatic frontline stories as Liberia and Afghanistan, but also transcended the conventional boundaries of image making to become one of the most important journalists of his generation.

It details their trips to Antwerp, their travel across the ocean, and their adjustments to their new lives in America. Theirs are intimate yet epic journeys in which past and present merge in the forging of new identities. The film, which is shot on location in Antwerp, New York, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Russia and Ukraine, uses ‘emotional archaeology’ to weave a richer narrative than could be conveyed through a string of facts and figures. And walking in the footsteps of Red Star Line passengers, surprising similarities are revealed to the experiences of modern immigrants.
