I mainly agree with other writers here. Some explosions could have been
better, some serious tactics planning would have helped and they could
have left out the "look, we fight in slow motion with tragic
soundtrack, isn't war just hell?" part. But altogether a good war
movie. Beautiful photography, good acting, good actor directing, good
screenplay, raises healthy questions of war etc.
I liked this one when I first saw it, although I was a bit
disappointed. Few years earlier Director Olli Saarela made about hour
long short movie called Lunastus, which is still in my top 50 (of the
15,000+ movies I've seen).
A Danish writer summarized couple years ago: "...and the Finns were
heroic, after all (which they were, but was it worth the losses?)"
Well, the Finns could not just surrender and wait for somebody else to
I was born in 1969, and I'm happy and grateful that I've been able to
live relatively free life, in an independent and a democratic
government country. Finland went through three different wars during
the World War II, and every time it was about staying independent.
The Soviets started the Winter War by attacking Finland. During those
days the Allies, the British and the French offered to send troops, but
this was canceled since the Swedish would not let those troops travel
trough Swedish soil. After 105 days peace was met and _Finnish soil_
(meaning PART OF OUR COUNTRY!) was given to the bullies. People were
driven from their homes. During the peace Soviet Union continued to
make more demands. I am always amazed how our neighbors in Scandinavia
seem to think Finland, a country of 3 and 1/2 million, was provoking
here and attacking there to gain more land and power just because they
were so greedy back then.
Finland was friendly with Germany, who had already helped the Republic
during the Civil War of 1918. The Germans told the Finns of their plan
to attack the Soviet Union. Finland and Germany signed a pact of war
against the Soviet Union, who continued to make their demands trough
the whole peacetime. Continuation war started in 1941, few days after
Germany attacked Soviet Union. Finnish troops took back their land and
some more, and then ceased advancing to hold lines which held until the
major Soviet offensive of 1944. The Finns first retreated with speed,
but after few weeks stopped the offensive, and destroyed few Soviet
divisions again. Peace was met, but the Soviets demanded that the Finns
had to turn against their comrades in arms, the Germans. The Lapland
War ended when last Germans retreated to Norway just before the end of
war in Europe.
Few sane points to keep in mind:
1. Without Soviet aggression there would not have been war in the first
2. Without the Soviet Union taking land and demanding for more the
Finns would not have made pacts with Germany and advanced to Russia.
Think about a part of your country where lives about 15% of your
people, would you be very willing to let it just go?
3. Germany and Finland were friendly before Nazis, Germany helped
Finland in Civil war of 1918. Finland relied to Nazi Germany as their
only friend to help against the Soviet threat during the peace between
the Winter and the Continuation War.
4. Finland did not help Germany against the Western Allies. Finland did
not help Germany with the siege of Leningrad or with other German
5. For the Finns it was only about staying independent. That they
achieved. Was it worth the victims? Well, yes, if the whole country
including even the great majority of Finnish communists wants to stay
independent and free and is determined to fight for it.
