The residue of war is anger and bitter resentment in Land of Mine , a tense, powerful dramatisation of true events from the summer of 1945. Following the German surrender, Sergeant Rasmussen (Roland Moller) is assigned a dozen Nazi soldiers to remove some of the million or more landmines planted along Denmark’s western coast. The soldiers are little more than terrified, homesick boys, but they represent an enemy that everyone wants to punish. Initially indifferent to their fate, Rasmussen watches over their pitiless treatmen. If there is no vestige of sympathy for the vanquished then what hope is there for humanity as a fragile peace is established? Roland Moller attends Land of Mine on Sunday 21 Feb (15.30) for an introduction and Q&A session
