excellent!!!
28 April 2007 | by reetta37See all my reviews

This was one of The Best movies I've ever seen made by T.Koivusalo! It really could've been a true story of many minor cities during the Russian wanna-have-Finland -invasion. And how many of our grandparents have experienced these situations. Casting was just perfect! Leppilampi was convincing with all the other actors! Can't find any bad words about this movie. I've never cried so much watching a Finnish movie before. And songs were really supportive to the story! With such beautiful voices and orchestra connecting the songs together within the story! Just excellent!!! Anyone who is interested about the resent history should see this movie!
