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

Aku Louhimies' 'Unknown Soldier' is wonderful exception, a total success with over million spectators in few months time only.
