| Must see for all cowboys, posers and dreamers.
Based on a controversial best-selling novel named Sissiluutnantti by Paavo Rintala, Sissit tells a story of a mission by a Finnish army long range recon patrol operating deep behind soviet lines during world war II. All is not rosy as the battle-hardened men of the special detachment of the 20th division fight their way through the enemy lines. If you liked Peckinpah's Cross of Iron, you probably won't be disappointed after seeing this one.
