Jadesoturi is a truly great movie. Wonderful story, great filming, superb acting - the movie catches you and does not let go! :)
This is actually the first ever Finnish movie I truly enjoyed watching to from the beginning to the end and once it was over I instantly wanted to watch it again!
Real masterpiece! What is most amazing - the movie is done mostly by beginners in the movie business.
Hope the Finnish "big-time producers" will learn some lessons out of the success of this movie and will finally start to invest in the quality films, instead of usual crap they throw at as year after year...
