In the days following the surrender of Nazi Germany in May 1945, a group of German soldiers – most barely out of their teens – are put to work by their Allied captors. With minimal training, they are sent to locate and disarm their own hidden weapons that still litter the beaches along Denmark’s west coast, under the supervision of a righteous and embittered Danish sergeant, Rasmussen (Roland Møller, in a superb performance). Scornful of the Germans for their five-year occupation of his country, and intent on punishing what’s left of their army, he marches his squad out on the dunes each day to prod for mines. Yet this risky task soon challenges even Rasmussen, who grows more and more conflicted in his feelings toward his young charges.

Harrowing, heart-breaking and totally captivating,
Land Of Mine is a true gem deserving of more media attention and one that is well-worth seeking out; a truly accomplished, really, really tense piece of perfection.” -  Paul Heath, The Hollywood News | full review

Land of Mine is, without a shred of doubt, the best foreign language film I have seen in 2016. When it finally arrives to theater near you, please, please, please, reward it with your attention.” – Jason Singer,

"Zandvliet’s script and direction avoid milking an innately loaded situation for excess melodrama or pathos, sticking to a discreet economy of approach that accumulates considerable power.” – Dennis Harvey,
Variety | full review

"A classic wide-screen World War II epic but with a number of unsettling twists." – Kenneth Turan,
Los Angeles Times | full review

"At this point it might seem hard to find a World War II story that hasn’t been told, but Danish director Martin Zandvliet has come up with a fresh and compelling approach to this well-traveled territory.” – Stephen Farber,
The Hollywood Reporter | full review
