The twin sisters Helena and Irene are born in Helsinki during World War II. A few months later their mother, Sirkka, leaves the girls in the care of their grandmother, an old communist, and runs away with a German soldier. Their life under the protection of their grandmother and the teachings of communism ends first with the death of Stalin, then with that of their grandmother.

Non seulement le script manie parfaitement l'humour noir et la vraie emotion, mais David Ayer montre egalement qu'il est un tres bon metteur en scene.

It's a violent, occassionally funny movie that plays on the stereotypes of being British and American. I didn't think much of it - needlessly violent and the humour was distincly pureile.

This feels a lot like (and even sounds, as far as music and especially dialogue) a precursor to Curb Your Enthusiasm. could see this being an episode, but doesn't work great as a movie. worth at least one view though, not completely unwatchable.
