A biopic done in a western style

This tells the story of Laplander reindeer owner Aleksi Hihnavaara, also known as Mosku.He chased some reindeer thieves and also ended up killing some of them.And some of them wanted him to get killed.Mosku- Lajinsa Viimeinen (2003) is directed by Tapio Suominen.Kai Lehtinen must be the right man to play Mosku.And Maria Järvenhelmi must be the right woman to play his Mari.Petter Sairanen plays Wallenius.Rauno Ahonen is Hammaksen Kuisma.Uula Laakso is Rupipää.Tarja-Tuulikki Tarsala plays Koltta-akka.Otto Kanerva is Taverna Customer.This is fairly good biopic of this man I didn't know too much about.I guess it has taken many artistic liberties in telling his story.The movie makes him a somewhat western type antihero, but it does look good on film.A western set in Lapland- not done too many times.
