The last one of the five landmarks
17 May 2006 | by (finland) – See all my reviews

What a loss it was for the whole area of movie making when Nyrki Tapiovaara, maybe the most talented director ever in Finland, fell down defending his country in 1940!

Just before Tapiovaara's last days came out the last one of his five masterpieces; a strong drama called "Miehen Tie". In this film can be seen the strong influences of Sergei Eisenstein as together with Erik Blomberg they managed to make the storytelling so brilliant by using some beautiful silent shots combined with overwhelming emotions.

"Miehen Tie" is very different from its time and it can only be adored how acting is kept so cool and dark all along the way. The dialog works perfectly as the original writer of the novel, F.E. Sillanpää, adapted the work for the screen.

This is a real pearl from the old times. It's also a very important part of the history of Cinema and should be seen by everyone keen on early Soviet films.
