In post-World War II Denmark, the Danish government puts their hated German prisoners of war to work clearing the 1.5 million landmines from the western beaches of the country. At one such beach, Sgt. Carl Leopold Rasmussen finds himself in charge of one such labor unit and finds they are largely all inexperienced boys. As the boys struggle to complete and survive their dangerous work, Sgt. Rasmussen's hate for Germans gradually cools as he grows to understand the horrific situation these child soldiers are in even as the mines claim more and more victims. Eventually, the boys and the Sergeant must decide what can be done in a situation that would be later be denounced by later generations as the worst war crime committed by the Danish government in its history.

In this case the cinematography, directing, and score are the high points. The overall story is based on true events, and is portrayed in a very effective manner. The acting is excellent. It is an amazing film, and I highly recommend it.

One of the most powerful films I have ever seen. A wonderful film with a beautiful message. I watched this film with a friend who was skeptical at first, but she quickly warmed to the film. I was in the same boat. This is a film you will watch again and again. It is powerful, emotional and it will touch you in many different ways. This film is a must watch for any film lover. I highly recommend this film to everyone. I can not recommend it more highly.

I have watched this movie for the first time in my life. I have to say that it is one of the most emotional movies I have ever watched. It really touches the heart of every human being. There are scenes which will make you cry and others which will make you laugh and laugh. This movie is not just a movie. It is a representation of the human experience and the human spirit. This movie is so well done that I can't believe that I have never seen it before. It is really a must watch movie. I give this movie a 10/10.

This is a wonderful film that goes a long way in shedding light on the atrocities committed during World War II. The film is beautifully photographed and the actors are great. This film should be in everyone's DVD collection. I hope it will be recognized for the great work that it is.

I have seen this movie many times, and I just bought it on DVD. The movie is so good that it makes me cry. The acting is so great, and the story is so real, that I feel that it is true. The cast is perfect, and I can not understand how this movie has not been nominated for best picture. It deserves it, and is a great movie. I will watch this movie over and over again.

There are a lot of people who have reviewed this movie, I am not one of them. I saw this movie in the theater and it was absolutely amazing. The story is very good, it's interesting, and the acting is good. The music is very good and the direction is great. It's a movie that you will never forget, it's so well done. You should see it in the theater because the theater is the best, but I think it would be good to see it in the IMAX. You will not regret it, you will enjoy it. It's a very well done movie.

I just saw this movie and I'm amazed. I was interested in seeing the movie because of the lead actress. I was very impressed by her performance. She gave such a convincing and authentic performance. She was so well casted, and you really feel like she is a real person. She is also very beautiful. I've never seen a movie that had such an amazing actress. I'm very glad I saw this movie. I think it's very very powerful. It is definitely worth watching. I also want to tell you that I was a bit disappointed by the way the movie ended. I thought it was just too little. But, it's not really a big deal, because I really like the ending. It was just the way it was. Overall, I recommend this movie. You should definitely watch it.

It is always good to see an historical movie and see how the conflict played out, how the individuals played out and how the world reacted to the events. This movie does that very well, showing the various stages of the conflict. The movie was very well shot, especially with the scenes of the French and the Germans. The actors were very convincing, and I think that they played their roles very well. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who likes war movies, because this is one of the best.

I first saw this film when it was shown on television as a kid, and was surprised that it was so moving. I remember reading the book in the 1970s and always wanting to see it. I finally got around to seeing it on TV and the reaction was so much more powerful than I ever expected. The film is a true tragedy, and it is so realistic. The children's performance is incredible. The actors are very good. The cinematography is fantastic. It is a very powerful film. I recommend it highly.

What a wonderful film. Every actor (except for the children) was superb. This film is so moving and touching. I've never felt so sorry for the Holocaust victims. This is a very well done film. The story is very real. It's very disturbing to see the Jews being slaughtered in cold blood. I feel very guilty watching this film. I have never felt so disgusted watching a movie. I'm very proud to be Canadian and I love this country. I don't understand how anyone could not like this film. It is very powerful. I wish I could have the privilege of watching this film in the cinema. It's so moving. This is a must see film. I wish I could have seen it in the theatre. It's a very powerful movie.

I just saw this movie yesterday at a special screening of the Cannes Film Festival. I think it's a great movie. Not only the story of the refugees from the Nazi occupation of France but also the amazing relationship between the refugees and the French people. The story is not about how the refugees are welcomed in France but the story of the French people. I liked the way the movie told the story of the refugees and the French people. It was very well done. The acting is great and the direction is also very good. The movie is very emotional. The actors, the actors in the story and the director all did a very good job. I think this movie is a must see for anyone who wants to know more about the French Resistance. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes good movies.

My expectations were very low for this movie, but it was an amazing movie. The fact that the movie was filmed in Russian makes it even more powerful. I think the movie should have won many awards. It was so well done, I hope the director gets the award. I also love the movie because it was very realistic. The fact that they didn't try to make the movie "more politically correct" made it even more realistic. I hope more people will see this movie. It is very good.

As a teenager, I was captivated by this film, and it is still one of my favourite films. I saw it on cable the other night, and I was just blown away by the movie. It's a beautiful story about the horrors of war, and the life of a single woman who had to survive and fight for her life. The acting is excellent, the story is incredible, and the music is haunting. The performances are phenomenal. I'm a sucker for movies that involve the horrors of war, and this is one of the best. This is one of the few movies I can watch over and over again, and it never gets old. I am so glad I had the opportunity to see this movie.

This movie is an eye opener, and if you haven't seen it, I would highly recommend it. I watched it in college and it was a shock to see the atrocities of the Holocaust. This movie is not to be taken lightly, and is not to be taken lightly. The acting is great, and the editing is flawless. The Nazi atrocities are brutal and vile, but the real atrocities that happened were the crimes of war. This movie has the potential to become a classic.

This film is just outstanding. The acting is superb, the story is gripping and the acting is great. This film shows the horrors of the Second World War, the German atrocities committed against the Jews, the destruction of the Jewish community in Poland and the Germans who were the victims. It shows the destruction of the Polish people as well as the Germans. This film is based on true events and tells the story of a small group of Polish Jews who escaped from Germany to Britain and the horrors they faced in London. The Nazis were the worst people to ever live on this planet and they were the worst people to live in the history of the world. This film is a must see for all people who want to see a true story.

I have seen this movie about 2 or 3 times and I am still shaking. I really enjoyed this movie, the actors did an amazing job. This is a movie that you need to see, especially if you are interested in history and the war in Iraq. The war in Iraq is not a simple matter, it is one of the biggest problems in the world. I am not sure that this movie can be compared to other war movies, because it is different. It is about a single man, who has a lot of emotions, and he is a kind of a hero, but at the same time, he is a man who is full of love and is not afraid to fight for what he believes in. I believe that this movie is a great example of how a war movie should be made.

The movie's story of a young German soldier, Pfc. Martin (Hans) and his daughter, Eva (Carol) during WW2. The movie starts with a very heavy intro, which is accompanied by a good soundtrack. The movie then takes a very unique direction, with a very sad and depressing subject. We see the horrors of war, from the bombing, the blood, the broken bodies, the dead and the dying. We see the only child in a war. The movie makes us feel sad, and it makes us feel angry. The movie is a very good example of how to make a film, without the usual 'hero' in a movie. I highly recommend this movie, it is one of the best I've seen in a long time. I don't want to give the story away, but it's a very good story. This movie is very important for young people, who might not have seen it. It teaches them that war is horrible and horrible, and that there are no heroes in war. I also like the ending, which is very realistic and sad. I really recommend this movie to everyone, and I also recommend that everyone go and see it. I highly recommend this movie, it is a good movie.

I thought the film was excellent. The acting was very good and the story was very moving. The film takes you on a journey of despair and all that the war has done to people and to their families. The way the war has affected the world was well shown. I also thought the film was very realistic in the way it depicted the actual military tactics used in the war. I have seen many movies about the war but this one is my favorite.
