It's very, very good. I read it compared to 'Saving Private Ryan', but it is better than that, imo.

I am someone who hates battle scenes in movies. Watching people getting killed is not a way to entertain someone, but it is certainly something that you need to examine and explain when and if you can. The Finns were defending their country against the Soviets completely with small arms and some smaller artillery (in the film). It was only after the Soviets brought to bear tanks and aircraft that they drove the Finns back over their border and forced them to sue for peace. Three years of war.

I recommend it.

The Finnish Airforce logo might have been confusing.

That's a different but equally good movie.

Brewster Buffalo, a rather useless fighter.
