The Situation is a 2006 film directed by Philip Haas and starring Connie Nielsen.[1] It was produced by Liaquat Ahamed, a Pulitzer Prize-winning author.


The film plays out against the backdrop of the 2003 Iraq War, where an American journalist (who happens to be in a love triangle between a CIA operative and an Iraqi photographer) is collecting material to write a meaningful story.



  1. ^ J. Hoberman - Film After Film: (Or, What Became of 21st Century Cinema?) 2012 p154 "The Situation, Philip Haas's deftly paced, well-written, and brilliantly infuriating Iraq War thriller is not only the strongest of recent geopolitical hotspot flicks but one that has been designed for maximal agitation."
