    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    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. show more

    Michael Sragow Baltimore Sun

    No Man's Land is a 98-minute wonder: this story of three men in a trench renews the meaning of the word "trenchant." show more
