"It is a work entirely worthy of any prize anyone chooses to bestow on it, compassionate and intelligent... should linger long after the 24-hour news cycle is over or the political flavour of the month goes stale. 4/4 stars" - Kate Taylor, Globe & Mail

OSCAR WINNER! Best Foreign Language Film. “Human nature has always been the focus of writer/director Asghar Farhadi. Farhadi is a man more interested in impact than event. It’s not the disappearance in his 2009 film About Elly that matters as much as the ripple effect caused by it.

That’s the goal of both the film and the title character, a parody persona adopted by an eccentric divorced dad to both repel, and earn the love of, his disapproving daughter.

"Zandvliet has crafted a handsome, affecting and questioning film about post-war revenge and forgiveness. On a tough field to navigate, he makes it to the other side, commendably." - Globe & Mail

Oscar-nominated for Best Foreign Language Film. “Written and directed by Martin Zandvliet, Land of Mine takes place just after World War II. And a key part of its plot involves not hardened combat veterans but young teenage boys, kids really, some no older than 15.
