Storyline

After an environmental disaster, the arctic regions of Scandinavia have become a wasteland, a battlefield for the army and rebels' guerrilla troops. A bunch of crooks with motorbikes, lead by 'Duke', is terrorizing the civilians. An escaped prisoner, Jake, has personal reasons for killing Duke, and he gets help from the locals, including a girl suffering of amnesia and a harmless nutcase. The time for payback is to come, but Duke has decided to strike first. Written by B-rapunSaario

According to director Mika Kaurismäki, movie was supposed to be much bigger production with bigger names playing Jake and Doaiva, but unnamed female star got ill and had to cancel her appearance. Thus project lost half of its funding and male star pulled out also. Jolyon Baker and Fanny Bastien were attached just few weeks before shooting started. See more »

A film that gets no rewatches
27 September 2014 | by (Finland/Estonia) – See all my reviews

One man's search for revenge in a post-apocalyptic wasteland? Couldn't they have come with something at least a bit original? The italians did it a million times over in the eighties, but apparently none of them reached the far north, so the finns apparently had to make one for themselves.

And I really wish they didn't. The film is clunky, and the finnish laconic way of expression doesn't really do it any favors. The scenery is dull, but the ends of Europe found in the north should be used to emphasize the bleakness of life in the post-apocalyptic world instead of just being a simple backdrop. In many moments I found myself forgetting the very setting of the movie, as it felt none different from what it really is in pre-apocalyptic Lapland, with all the local alcoholics with inadequately pronounced English.

The good thing is that this film is not "broken", as in it does have a structure and various levels of acting. The bad thing is... everything else, really. This film has no feel to eat, it doesn't look any good, and engages the viewer only in doing something else than watching this film best left in the bargain bin one can expect to find it.
