Land of Mine 2015

Movie Rating:

Plot

After the end of German occupation, German soldier prisoners were transferred to Danish authorities. They use those prisoners to remove millions of mines that the Germans had placed in the West coast.

Thoughts

The film creates full on tension from the first scene of untrained soldiers defusing mines by hand. The location was kind of scary and the performances delivered by the young actors were very effective. The sound and special effects team did a fabulous job in making the explosion scenes more terrifying. Those explosive scenes gave me a new experience when I saw this film in theatres on a special occasion. Overall, it's a serious movie and all credits goes to Zandvleit's straight forward storytelling method which makes it a must watch.
