Land of Mine
Director Martin Zandvliet
Starring Roland Møller, Mikkel Boe Følsgaard, Louis Hofmann
Bringing to light a little-known and far from honourable chapter of
Danish history, this convincingly-acted and insanely tense film tells
the story of a group of young German POW’s in post WW2. They are
forced to clear a beach of thousands of land mines under the watch
of a Danish Sergeant who slowly learns to appreciate their plight.
“A harrowing look at life after war” – The Observer
Land of Mine has won numerous awards, including Best Actor,
Best Supporting Actor and Best Danish Film at the Bodil Awards.
Average = 8.33
Best film I have seen at the club. Good but horrible.
If ever there was a mine that needs defusing I will know what to do.
So well made so hard to watch.
Horrific, graphic, emotional.
Harrowing and moving.
Beyond words a return to barbarism.
Like a horror film with mines instead of monsters.
