No Man's Land

No Man’s Land, director Danis Tanovi´’s wise, humane, surprisingly funny movie — and recent winner of the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film — eloquently shows that war is as absurd as it is horrifying. Trapped in a trench between opposing front lines, Bosnian soldier Ciki (Djuri´) must get along with Serbian enemy Nino (Bitorajac) in order to save his friend Cera (Filip Sovagovi´). Zeroing in on this unlucky trio, Tanovi´ — who also wrote the sharp screenplay and low-key music — gets at the heart of a conflict that even well-meaning U.N. peacekeepers and meddling TV reporters can’t stop.
