Great dockumentary of Estonians fighting for their freedom
23 May 2007 | by hullmanSee all my reviews

I have seen a lot of WWII movies but all of them are about another country, so few are about Estonia. Sinimäed tells the story of Estonians fighting for their freedom under Narva and on the ''Bluemountains''. Most of the film contains archive footage which is the greatest about the film. A lot interviews of Estonians who were really there. You can see it in their eyes that it is so hard for them to tell the story of what happened back then.

If You are a fan of history and interested in WWII you should really see this film. I think it is the best film of Estonians in WWII.

I gave it 9 out of 10 because it lacked something but i do not know what. If you find it please post it here.
