Pojat (1962)

– There’s no justice worth fighting for in Oulu.

It’s both scary, surreal, and disgusting to see the naively enthusiastic citizens of Oulu cheer and mingle with nazi troops during Finland’s continuation war.

– Coffee and grammar can’t hide women’s desires.

Things get gradually darker with corpse trains, smuggling, and executions – plus all the misguided »anti-heroics« of a rather daft boy gang trying their best to grow up through the strange war years. Hardly in my book of collaboration mechanisms, the farcical story and clumsy acting weakens the experience.

– Don’t you know all grown-ups are insane?
