Tuntmaton sotilas
27 August 2018 | by ruusuariSee all my reviews

People outside Finland could have to trouble lo undestand this movie. Soldiers that attended this war are the reason I am not russian, in Finland the veterans attending this war have the benefit of using the public tranportation for free, ones when i was in the train a ticket cotroller checked the ticket for one of these soldiers and when it was clear this was a war veteran everybody in that carriage stand up and applaud.
