Sisu

Jalmari Helander | 2022 | 91 MINS
Finland
A grizzled loner discovers a huge vein of gold in Lapland only to be tormented by a platoon of retreating Nazis. Cue 90 minutes of glorious blood-splattered mayhem.

In Detail

When the Nazis steal his gold, they quickly discover that they have just tangled with no ordinary miner.

While there is no direct translation for the Finnish word "sisu", this legendary ex-commando will embody what sisu means: a white-knuckled form of courage and unimaginable determination in the face of overwhelming odds. Should you want to spend 90 minutes watching Nazis get shot, stabbed, gutted, blown up, run over, and beaten with a variety of inanimate objects, in the most violent and gory manner possible, this war movie is the answer to your pulp-cinema prayers. A Tarantino-knock-off with its violent action seen through a blackly comedic lens.
