Beautiful dark masterpiece of film noir
22 January 2006 | by (finland) – See all my reviews

Nyrki Tapiovaara made a short career by directing only five movies. Still he can be remembered as one of the early masters of Finnish cinema. "Varastettu kuolema" is a great example of Tapiovaara's talent. It's a rare piece of work as being one of the few film noir -styled movies of the local products.

The film brings us among a group of revolutionists preparing for some militaristic actions. However this won't be so easy as the times are hard and people corrupted. "Varastettu kuolema" crawls through the dark alleys and twisted people just the way as the famous works of the Hollywood film noir do. The ending breaks out to be astonishing. Peter von Bagh claims it to be the best scene in the history of Finnish film!
