Our next film: Land of Mine

Our next film, on Tuesday 20 November at 19:45, is Land of Mine. 

Directed by Martin Zandvliet and first released in the UK in 2017, this is a tense dramatisation of some little-known events at the end of the Second World War.

German prisoners of war in Denmark were made to clear the country’s western beaches of landmines, with harrowing results. Based on historical fact, the film benefits from an excellent central performance by Roland Møller as the hard-bitten Danish sergeant who is placed in charge of one unit and finds they are all teenagers. As the boys struggle with their lethal task, Sgt Rasmussen finds his harsh attitude to the German invaders beginning to change.
