At the end of WW2, veteran Danish army sergeant Carl Rasmussen (Møller) is placed in charge of a group of teenage German POWs who he puts to work defusing and removing 45,000 landmines. Intelligent, poignant, Oscar-nominated drama about the dehumanising effect of war, carried by an ebullient, heartfelt performance from Møller.

The Odyssey

The Odyssey
  • 2016
  • France
  • 2h 2min
  • Directed by: Jérôme Salle
  • Cast: Lambert Wilson, Pierre Niney, Audrey Tautou

Biopic of underwater explorer Jacques Cousteau (Wilson), focusing on his strained relationship with his son. It looks fantastic, but becomes bogged down in soap opera conventions and biopic cliché, with characters such as Cousteau’s long-suffering wife Simone (Tautou) pushed to the sidelines.
