film synopsis

Sometimes at a festival you see a film so potent and so emotionally strong, about real disasters with real stakes, that you have to pause before watching another. Land of Mine is such a film. It reaffirms the power and pleasure of cinema and film's ability to urgently communicate the horrors and injustices of the past and say something profound about human nature.

Based on true events, this morally complex and almost unbearably intense multi-award-winning film tells the story of a group of young German POWs who are brought to the Danish west coast to remove from the beaches the still-live landmines that their troops left behind. At first scornful and intent on punishing what's left of the Nazi army, the angry Danish sergeant in charge grows conflicted in his feelings toward the youths.

"A fresh and compelling approach to this well-traveled territory. The film works as a moving antiwar essay and as a gripping thriller." Stephen Farber, The Hollywood Reporter

Winner: Best Film, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Bodil Awards; Audience Awards, AFI, Gijon, Trondheim, Rotterdam
