Against the sunny landscape of a Bosnian summer, two enemy soldiers are trapped in a trench in no man's land. The world's press watch as a French UN sergeant battles with a British colonel to negotiate their safety. And the only people who speak the same language are the men fighting each other for survival in the trench. Surprisingly funny, strikingly moving, No Man's Land is a portrait of the petty normality, not only of one particular war, but of all conflicts everywhere.
Superb film about war

This film manages to chieve what so many movies about modern wars do not: it is entertaining as well as being dark and ironic. Most films about the former Yugoslavia or Africa or Iraq etc and terribly worthy - and didactic. This is darkly funny and entertaining - which makes it far more moving and worthy than those other movies. This film is superbly paced, with great dialogue, nice twists and an ending that perfect sums up to insanity and inanity of war. Superb!
