The classic Finnish war novel about a group of colorful people fighting against Soviet Union for various of reasons got readapted 30 years after the iconized first film adaptation. With the guy behind The Earth Is a Sinful Song at the director’s chair this film takes more realistic and documentaric approach that has both advantages and disadvantages. Was also Finland’s submission for Best Foregin Language Film Oscar race.

BigBlackHatMan: I liked the little dedication to someone you worked with in the middle. That was cool even if you did have to argue a little. It does seem the original was better based on both your reviews. Good work
