Perfect update of epic Finnish warnovel
22 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

Director Louhimies has succeeded in presenting Väinö Linnas' novel into 21st century and two more generations. Thank You to all who made this happen.

In Finland all too many lousy movies are released based on national subsidy -system. Their subsidy/number of viewers -ratios can be up to hundred euros. Aku Louhimies' 'Unknown Soldier' is wonderful exception, a total success with over million spectators in few months time only.
