September 25/27 Talvisota (The Winter War), 1999, 191 minutes, K-11
This classic film, released on the 50th anniversary of the outbreak of the Winter War, is hailed as one of the most realistic depictions of war ever created. With Antti Tuuri’s script from his novel of the same name, director Pekka Parikka has created an epic that is, at the same time, personal and human.
This year marks the 80th anniversary of the start of the Winter War – the first in a series of wars in Finland during what was globally known as World War II. This is the first of three films shown in the fall to commemorate this important event in Finnish history.
