I really like this film.
7 December 1999 | by See all my reviews

This film is in my opinion one of the few really great Finnish films. I think the longer version for television is by far better then the short movie version. This work of art has stood the test of time and is still today very meaningfull. The acting, especially the amateurs used in various roles emphazise the overall impact of the film. No matter what one thinks about the actual events that took place this film conveys something universal about humanity and should be appreciated by a wider audience.
