An Analysis Of No Mans Land And Gallipoli

695 words - 3 pages

In the world during the 19th century many wars marked history, people chose to die for their country and their religion. The two movies chosen were "No Man's Land" and "Gallipoli." The first movie was "No Man's Land" which took place in Bosnia, which was about the Serb-Bosnia conflict. The second movie was "Gallipoli" which took place in Austria, which was about the trench warfare in Gallipoli

The movie "No Man's Land", the main characters are Ciki and Nino, a Bosnian and a Serb, are soldiers stranded in no man's land-a trench between enemy lines during the Bosnian war. They have no one to trust, no way to escape without getting shot. Also a fellow soldier is lying on the trench floor with a bouncing mine set to explode beneath him if he moves. When a Serbian soldier puts a mine under a dead body, this portrays how much hatred Serbs had for Bosnian's. Even though one is dead it is not enough but for the enjoyment the Serbian set the mine regardless. In the movie the two main characters strip to their underwear to show their helplessness while standing at the top of the trench waving a white t-shirt. However it seems that the world is more concerned with politics than the lives of these helpless men, both sides were not willing to take the risk to even check if they were there own. In the scenes during when Ciki and Nino was stuck in the trench it portrays the bond that unites human beings. The two soldiers realize that while the two belong to enemy countries, they behave in similarly and acknowledge their helplessness even though with all there differences. The strange thing in the movie was when both the soldiers die. Both soldiers believed it was the opposite side that started the war, but the soldiers didn't really seem to care about their country but care more about hating each other. When both soldiers die this portrays the conflict where no one is likely to emerge a winner, and the war would bring more death.
