Henrique Amud's rating of the film Land of Mine

I was not particularly looking for yet another WWII film but I'm glad I came across this little gem with a brand new point of view. What we get is a bleak based-on-true-events story told very straightforwardly and half a dozen wonderful and nuanced performances. It feels like it is stuck in a loop sometimes but it finds its way out of it with remarkable effect.
