True life historical account of the young German soldiers forced to diffuse thousands of landmines from the Danish coast in the aftermath of WWII, creating a crisis of conscience for the otherwise hardened sergeant charged with supervising the monumental task. Provides insight into the horrors facing prisoners of war and this flick delivers with one explosive script.

Not for the faint of heart. I watched more than half but really couldn't take the tension, the violence and horror. I turned to wikipedia's movie description online to know how the movie ends and to understand the history behind the film. A very worthwhile story but a challenge to watch.

Disturbing! and disgusting the way human beings were treated in the war.

Post WWII, German war prisoners are forced by the Danish to risk their lives discovering and defusing land mines on the beaches planted by Germans because they thought the allied landing would be there. They were told that they would not be released until the mines were de-activated. I suspect that this rule was against the military code of conduct. An excellent film.

For films with WWII as the background this is one of the better ones. It is also a very moving film. My only -ve comment is the transformation of a cruel, heartless sergeant (as depicted in the film's opening scene) to a more humane character is a bit dramatic. Great acting by a cast of young, unknown German actors. Subtitles.
