No 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).
