In 1945, Germany ended its occupation of Denmark, leaving hundreds of thousands of land mines buried on the beaches of that country’s western coast. The dangerous job of clearing them was given to German prisoners of war, a punishment that seems at once intuitively fair and obviously cruel. That ethical tension — between justice and vengeance — is the subject of Martin Zandvliet’s “Land of Mine,” a tight and suspenseful film, nominated for Best Foreign Language film at the 2017 Oscars.
Drama/ History/ War, Denmark
