As the chords of Finlandia reverberate on the soundtrack, members of a machine-gun troop emerge from the woodlands to join the national Continuation War counterattack on the Soviets after the Winter War standoff. A true national epic, and one of the world's great war sagas, the film was based on Väinö Linna's eponymous novel. (Edvin Laine, 1955, subtitles, 169 minutes)
