San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
The film is exciting in two big ways: its simplicity of story (Tanovic does not get bogged down trying to give us an epic history) and the breadth of Tanovic's vision.

Chicago Tribune

By Michael Wilmington
In the remarkable, ferociously intelligent new film No Man's Land, Bosnian writer-director Danis Tanovic gives us a movie portrait of the Bosnian War, a conflict that has devastated his country, friends and neighbors -- and found in it both shocking humor and searing, relentless tragedy.

By Lou Lumenick
An absorbing, deeply affecting, well-acted --and remarkably evenhanded -- antiwar statement. It's also incredibly suspenseful and very blackly funny.

Like this diabolically designed weapon of war, Tanovic's film is coil-sprung to explode on the unsuspecting.

Entertainment Weekly

By Lisa Schwarzbaum
It's a merciless and mirthlessly funny antiwar weapon from a filmmaker who has seen battle firsthand and has lived to make art from memories of hell.

Land has a lot of funny moments, which are no less serious for being so, especially when the script turns politically prickly.
