評審團表示:「一群德國少年士兵被逼在漂亮的海岸清拆大戰中埋下的地雷,因戰爭變得卑劣的軍人從他們身上找回同情心。影片包含強而有力的比喻,象徵回鄉的承諾,並在二次大戰後變成地獄中的人間尋回希望。」

Land of Mine

評判團讚賞11齣候選影片的質素,西班牙及阿根廷聯合製作的《人狗情未了》得到特別讚賞:「影片以幽默手法,展示當人面對死亡時,惦記親友、同事甚至惱恨的人,學懂反省及聆聽真我。」

‘A man degraded by the war discovers compassion for a group of young German soldiers consigned to clear a beautiful landscape infested with mines. A powerful metaphor about the promise of coming home and search for hope inside the hellish aftermath of the Second World War.’

Land of Mine

The Jury complimented the festival office, for their high quality of film selections with a wide spectrum of cultures and geographical representations, decided to give a commendation to:

Truman directed by Cesc Gay (Spain/Argentina) ‘it shows in a humorous manner how people miss their family, friends, colleagues and even those they have crossed when they are facing death, and how they learn to reflect on themselves and listen to their hearts.’
