It is the summer of 1941. An eastern-Finnish machine gun company receives an order to turn in their surplus equipment. The company is transferred to the front lines. The next morning the soldiers wake to the sound of guns - the war has begun. The Finnish troops attack and quickly move across the border. The young, nervous rookies of the company get their baptism of fire, and the men become familiar with death and the hardships of war. Under strength and badly equipped they fight a superior enemy. The lists of heroes and of the dead seem endless. Edvin Laine's epic interpretation of Väinö Linna's war novel "Tuntematon Sotilas" is an entire chapter in the book of Finnish movie history.

Instead they got drama and a deep movie with more layers than an onion.In my eyes, this movie is about a woman dealing with death and depression. The way this is portrayed in the movie has been masterfully directed and incredibly acted. The movie sets the bar for psychological dramas with a horror twist. The way the illness taking over the mother was very creative however, a lot of horror/gore fans did not understand the underlying message.No good for horror fans. Incredible for everyone else. An almost perfect movie.

However - the score is fantastic, Young is pretty good, and Fierstein is fab in his confused gay supporting role. But most importantly, Daly appears in various stages of undress. What I?d call an absolute ?must-rent.?

That said, I was also curious to see what all the fuss was about regarding this truncated US cut that got banned and labeled a"video nasty." (It is primarily part two from the original series with about ten minutes from part one). As campy as it is, it's remarkably entertaining, with buckets of blood, striking choreography and interesting camera and sound choices. The characters are memorable and the 80 minutes whiz by. I suppose the censors were uncomfortable with the little "cub" being such a large part of the violence throughout. Personally, I found it a wacky blast and as a child I would have loved it.

Mira Sorvino gives a particularly strong standout performance.
