‘Land of Mine’ The Biggest Career-Changing Movie (2015)
Land of Mine (also known as Under Sandet in Germany) is one of Louis Hofmann’s most influential films.

Only a few German POWs are still alive after all the land mines have been defused. They’ve been asked to go to another location to defuse yet another batch of land mines.
Despite this, the Danish Sergeant abducts the remaining German POWs and abandons them near the German border, allowing them to flee freely.
The film received a total of 29 prizes and was nominated for a total of 25 awards at various film festivals and award shows. During the 89th Academy Awards, it was also nominated for ‘Best Foreign Language Film of the Year.’
