"Finnish swashbuckling epic adventure"
7 April 2002 | by RMFworksSee all my reviews

Very typical motion picture for a short decade (early 1950's) of beautiful swashbuckling dramas. First Errol Flynn -typish Finnish made adventure film since: "Rosvo Roope". Lots of fine rapier fencing sequences (Elizabethan style swordplay), silly jokes and very theatrical lines for all cast.

Suomi-Filmi made this picture mainly for an answer, to a success of Hollywood swashbucklers; including some: Errol Flynn, Tyrone Power, Stewart Granger -films. - See forexample RKO:s "At Sword's Point" (USA 1952) aka: (Son's of the Musketeers), and you'll see well the similarity. Even the musical score has some connections to this picture for a while.

Anyway, "Sadan Miekan Mies" is enjoyable movie experience, with very high class swordplay and beautiful exterior shots in historical locations. It is a story about villains, heroes and beautiful women in Sweden-Finland in early 17th century.

  • Must for all romantics!
