Starring: Jorma Tommila, Aksel Hennie, Jack Doolan

Director: Jalmari Helander

The story, set in 1944 in Finland, pits stoic ex-commando Aatami (Jorma Tommila), nicknamed “the Immortal”, against the retreating German troops who have the poor judgment to steal his gold, taunt his dog and leave him for dead. The title, Sisu, is a Finnish word that roughly translates as grit, determination, bravery and smarts. Aatami displays all of these traits, plus a knack for turning almost anything he can lay his hands on into a weapon. It’s graphic and gory but everything is a bit tongue-in-cheek in a Tarantino kind of a way. For example Aatami is so tough that he can plunge his hand deep into his own innards to pull out shrapnel.

Sisu is a wild ride and provides pure over-the-top, gory, pulp-cinema chaos and great entertainment.
