LAND OF MINE gets UK distribution deal

Danish film Land of Mine has been picked up by British distribution company Metrodome, ScreenDaily reports. Written and directed by Martin Zandvliet, Land of Mine takes place shortly after the end of WWII and focuses on a group of German prisoners of war who are forced to clear more than 1.5 million landmines on the Danish coastline.

The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival back in September, and has debuted on Danish screens to critical acclaim just last week. The film has already premiered in London, Rome and Tokyo at film festivals, and has sold to France, Spain, Italy and Australia.

The film, which was the strongest new arrival at the Danish box office last weekend, opened Toronto’s new Platform strand on Sept 10 before berths at London, Rome and Tokyo, where the film’s rising lead actors Roland Møller (A Hijacking) and Louis Hofmann (Alone in Berlin) shared the Best Actor Award.
