Storyline

After various skirmishes, two wounded soldiers, one Bosnian and one Serb, confront each other in a trench in the no man's land between their lines. They wait for dark, trading insults and even finding some common ground; sometimes one has the gun, sometimes the other, sometimes both. Things get complicated when another wounded Bosnian comes to, but can't move because a bouncing mine is beneath him. The two men cooperate to wave white flags, their lines call the UN (whose high command tries not to help), an English reporter shows up, a French sergeant shows courage, and the three men in no man's land may or may not find a way to all get along.

Goofs

After Ciki shoots Nino and the old soldier, he loads the other of the together taped magazines in the rifle and makes a loading movement, thus cycling the first round in the chamber. A bit later, in the "who started the war scene" in the bunker, Ciki shouts "who started the war?" and makes another loading movement, which would cause the first round to be ejected (unspent) from the rifle. Yet no round is ejected. See more »

Quotes

Chiki: Do you even know what's the difference between a pessimist and an optimist?
Nino: No, what?
Chiki: A pessimist thinks things can't be worse. An optimist knows they can.

Grim, powerful war movie
17 March 2002 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

No Man's Land is a powerful, compelling film about the futility of war. The three major protagonists, two Bosnians and a Serb, are thrown together in a terrible situation, out of which it will be difficult to escape unscathed.

In addition to the warring factions, outside influences enter the picture in the form of a TV news reporter, and members of the UN forces in the region.

All three principals are excellent actors. In a supporting role, Katrin Cartlidge, as the TV reporter, is outstanding.

The portrayal of the British colonel who commands the UN troops is over-the-top. Other than that, I believe the script is excellent. This multinational production worked for me on both dramatic and historical grounds. A must see movie--not visually bloody, but haunting and saddening by what occurs, and what is implied.
