"Aftermath: The Remnants of War is a piercing critique of war's by-products and, by extension, war itself"
Robert Koehler – Variety
"The message is powerful and, one would hope, unforgettable: long after the peace platitudes have been sung, the survivors continue to battle war's grim legacy"
Min Sook Lee - Planet in Focus
" Perhaps the ultimate anti-war film. "
"What is so striking about AFTERMATH is the unforgettable information and images culminating in the irrefutable conclusion that all wars really last forever. I don't think anyone will go lightly to war having seen this film. It is one of the most compassionate and pragmatic arguments for peace I have ever seen ... a film everyone needs to see and think about.
"In Aftermath, we see that the shockwave set in motion by WW1 is still rolling on, as is the one set in motion by WW11. We say to ourselves "what were they thinking?" Then the film brings us closer in time and we are forced to realize that, whatever it was they-we-are thinking it still.
" This emotionally - charged film opens our eyes to the devastating impact war has on future generations. "
" It's edge of your seat tension ... Aftermath's unforgettable pictures are supported by an evocative, uncluttered script. "
"A simple but devastating message ... Aftermath strikes a chilling chord. "
" A sober look at the after effects of war around the world. "
" A horrifying account of the endless work being done to rid the world of unexploded bombs and landmines. "
" A fine documentary that should be watched and studied. "
" Aftermath shows us in graphic scenes that some wars never end. "
" Aftermath (is) a stunning war doc ... Aftermath doesn't embark on heavy-handed explanation, but illustrates a complex idea through the narratives of key characters and the wars that have shaped their lives. "
" A timely documentary which explores post-war devastation ... the two hour special is a thought-provoking investigation. "
" An excellent film that does not get mired in the analysis of cause, politics, or statistics. "
" Aftermath succeeds in its attempts to humanize this mad inheritance, to find out what it's like for the people who live every day with ghosts, sorrow and death. "
" Aftermath is right on target ... it is a startlingly clear picture of a horrific situation. "
" Aftermath is a detailed, moving and fascinating story. "
