Film Review: Sisu

 Sisu is a Finnish film set in World War 2, when the Nazis were on the way out of the country.

SISU, has been set in the backdrop of Northern Finland in the year 1944 and is centred round an elderly  man named Aatomi Korpi (Jorma Tommila) who is a war veteran.

On the way out, the Nazis adopted a scorched earth policy, razing the villages and areas they passed. 
A dreaded war veteran and ex war commando, Aatomi Korpi, who finds gold hidden in the soil, happens to pass by one Nazi convoy on the move.

Soon things turn bad, as the Nazis learn about the gold he is carrying and rob it from him,  leaving him to die.

But, they are in for a bad suprise. The veteran, who has lost everything in life,  is not someone who gives up easily. In fact, he never gives up.  What happens next ? Does he get back the gold? At what cost?

Sisu, is a raw, brutal, gripping action drama, that will suck you in and keep you on the edge of your seat till the very end. 

The action scenes are fast, compelling and full of twists. The main lead characters, make it all believable.

The camerawork is brilliant, immersing you in the experience, making you feel the tense atmosphere.
The bgm elevates the film further.

Though, not for the faint hearted, because of scenes of gore, SISU, is however, one experience not to be missed by action genre and War story lovers! 
In theatres from April 28th.
