Unknown Soldier by AKU LOUHIMIES is the story of an infantry unit’s tour of duty that lasts for more than three years during the Finnish Continuation War. The film is based on the classic novel by VÄINÖ LINNA. The film is the story of Rokka, Kariluoto, Koskela, Hietanen, and their brothers-in-arms. It shows how friendship, humour, and the will to live unite these men on their way there and back. The war changes the lives of each of the soldiers as well as the lives of those on the home front, and also leaves its mark on the entire nation.


Blu-ray Extras Include:

*Into the Unknown: The Making of Unknown Solider
*Deleted Scenes
*Post-production Featurettes
*Trailer

"Unknown Soldier is a tense, realistic war drama that doesn’t shy away from the horrors of battle. It doesn’t overdramatize the emotions, nor does it have a soundtrack that overpowers the film. Surprisingly, the use of music is pretty minimal here, but when it’s present, it works wonderfully. If there were another war film to which I would compare Louhimies’s, it would be Terrence Malick’s The Thin Red Line. Both are a slower, more poetic approach to the war genre, and are beautifully directed."

"At a time when wars are still being started by those greedy with power, The Unknown Soldier reminds us to remember who will ultimately pay the price."
