Synopsis

After Germany surrenders at the end of WWII, thousands of captured German soldiers are sent out to remove over 1.5 million mines placed by the Nazis on Denmark’s west coast. One of the groups, made up of young prisoners of war, is dropped at the seaside to complete this dangerous task.

There, they are met by the stern Danish army sergeant Rasmussen (Roland Møller). Each day, he sends the group of 14 boys into the sand dunes to search for mines. As they suffer more and more casualties, Rasmussen becomes conflicted with his hatred for the youths and finds his attitude towards them changing.

  • 5 stars "A great movie!"
  • 4 stars "An excellent film! Anyone with an understanding of the era will enjoy it and appreciate the story. If you have not studied the war at all, the background is explained perfectly. It is in German and Danish with subtitles but that only only makes it more authentic in my opinion. And for the first reviewer on the list here, the German word for sergeant is Feldwebel. :)"
  • 5 stars "I never knew this part of W.W. II. What was the word the young men used in German for seargant?"
