Preview: Declaration of War (2012)


A young couple struggle to handle the diagnosis that their child is suffering from a grave illness.

  • Poster: C-


Colorful to a point of repulsiveness, life isn't a carnival and the struggles this couple are facing aren't adequately represented in this poster, which could confuse audiences about what they are going to see.

  • Trailer: B+


It certainly looks like a compelling film. It's a bit chaotic at times, but it hits all the right notes to draw curious audiences to the theater...if they don't mind subtitles.

Oscar Prospects:

It's a contender for a Foreign Language Film nomination (at the 84th Oscars) and could very well get it. A win wouldn't be a shock either.
