Finnish work of art
Mikko Niskanen plays Pasi, a troubled man who shoots four policemen who come to arrest him.The movie shows the events that led to that situation.Kahdeksan surmanluotia (1972) is a powerful movie that is based on a true story.It's a Finnish masterpiece about a typical Finnish man who likes liquor more than he should.If he hadn't drank these tragic events would never have taken place.Mikko Niskanen (1929-1990) wrote and directed the movie.He also gives a magnificent performance in the lead.Others do great job as well.I could mention Tarja-Tuulikki Tarsala as Pasi's wife and Paavo Pentikäinen as Reiska.Esko Nikkari is there in an early work of his as one of the policemen.There are also lots of amateur actors who are brilliant.I saw this movie for the first time when I was just a kid.Last month I borrowed it from the library and it still works, maybe even better.Kahdeksan surmanluotia is a true work of art.It all starts with that great music played.
