No Man’s Land (2001)

Bosnia and Herzegovina, France, Slovenia, Italy, United Kingdom, Belgium 98m, Colour
Director: Danis Tanović; Cast: Branko Đurić, Rene Bitorajac, Filip Šovagović

nomanslandNo Man’s Land is the tragic story of three wounded soldiers who are trapped between the front lines during the Bosnian war. Two of the combatants forge a very uneasy alliance in an attempt to be rescued by UN forces, while a third, learns that he was placed on a landmine that will explode if he moves. As a statement on the absurdity of the war, and UN involvement, or lack thereof, No Man’s Land dark comedic tone also heightens the film’s shocking conclusion (Klaus Ming February 2015).

    Loved this one! One of my favorite anti-war films — a genre I’m not always that intrigued/interested by.

      Same here. I had not heard of this one before, and was happily surprised.
