The Irish premiere of the biggest-ever selling Finnish film that has taken over €17m at the box office. An epic masterpiece in film-making set in the Finnish-Russian war.
This was undoubtedly the most talked-about film with its two 'preview' screenings in Subtitle (Kilkenny) last year. Unknown Soldier is the biggest ever-grossing picture in Finland ($17m) and is nothing short of a triumph from director, Aku Louhimies.
The film is based on a best-selling book by Väinö Linna, who wrote about his personal experiences in the war and it follows a platoon of ordinary Finnish soldiers in the battlefield between Finland and the Soviet Union during World War II.
With a cast of incredibly talented actors to the photography and images, you are simply spellbound by the level of artistry at play in the hands of a master film-maker.
