    Relentlessly tense and difficult to watch. In fact it's about as close as I've ever seen any modern film come to The Wages Of Fear in that regard. 2 years ago

    This was one of the nominees for the best foreign language films at the 2017 Oscars. run 3 game I would have picked it or A Man Called Ove from Sweden. The Salesman won and I was not crazy about it. Land of Mine is what the title implies, and that is the 1.5 million land mines left in Denmark by the occupying German army from 1941-1945. German soldiers were forced to remove the mines, leading to numerous injuries and deaths. Some of the soldiers were teenagers and it is heartbreaking to watch these kids become the pawns of war. The sins of the older men who took their nations to war is what makes this at thinking person's movie. The boys had no responsibility for the atrocities committed by their leaders and yet they were the one who paid the highest price. They crawl on their hands and knees as they attempt to diffuse the mines from the beach. as expected, mistakes are made and innocent children die for no good reason. Land of Mine is one great movie. 1 month 3 weeks ago
