Based on true events an epic story of one man's struggle for survival. Jussi Ketola, returns to Finland from the great depression struck America only to face growing political unrest. One summer night of 1930, nationalist thugs violently abduct Ketola from his home. Beaten and forced to walk the Eternal Road towards a foreign Soviet Russia, where cruelty seems to know no end, his only dream is to return to his family cost it what it may. Hope dies last.
This is another bad movie about the persecution during the soviet union time. I mean we get it, do eastern European filmmakers have something new to offer? I haven't watched any Finnish movies before, but when I finally did, it was this boring movie. What makes it worse is the film is centered around one person whose acting in this film is terrible; he wasn't able to live in peace after he been kidnapped, ironically the viewrs suffered either.
I am not acquainted with the real events, that the plot is based on, but the adapting is just horrible I can't even consider it as a mediocre film; yes, it is that bad.
It's obvious that they made huge efforts to make it look like a Hollywood movie, but it doesn't matter since the storyline is super lame.
