No Man's Land on UTV World Movies on 27 December

MUMBAI: UTV World Movies will air Danis Tanovic's No Man's Land in its 'Movie of the Month' section on 27 December at 8.30 pm.

The film has won the Oscar, the Golden Globe and 42 other awards including best screenplay at Cannes Film Festival.

Incidentally, the director has made documentaries and shot war footage for the Bosnian army archives. His experience on the battlefield informs the film's details as well as the mordant humour and cynicism that laces the story.

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 find some common ground; sometimes one has the gun, sometimes the other and sometimes both.

Things get complicated when another wounded Bosnian comes too, 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.

Talking of the film, UTV World Movies programming head Manasi Sapre said, "A tight and haunting suspense, No Man's Land beat Lagaan and Amelie at Oscars with its mesmerising and brutal honesty.

A dark contemporary commentary on the evils of war, No Man's Land exposes the modern media for its inhuman sensationalism and portrays that violence: state sponsored or inherent in human beings will bring nothing but horrors to civilization."
