Aro Recommended No Man's Land


Bosnia 2001, 98 minutes
Dir. Danis Tanovic
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Drama / War

Topics: Satire.


Aroview: Snaring the 2002 Best Foreign Film Oscar, this black comedy set in the wartime trenches of mid-1990s Bosnia plays like a satirical diagram of the absurdities of the conflict, symbolised in its Beckett-like premise - a wounded man becomes lodged on a landmine, while two enemy soldiers jostle around him for the upper-hand.

Sniping at local hypocrisies, press agendas and the exasperating protocols of the UN, this unravels its simple premise with several wry twists in the tale, the fatalistic attitudes of the characters tightening on each other with a gripping logic.
