Yhden miehen sota

Risto Jarva Finland, 1973

Dada Kubin's rating of the film One Man's War

The story of a private entrepreneur who buys a digger and tries to make a living in the construction business (while living in a bus with his family) but eventually fails. Shot in a documentary style it gives a bleak but (I reckon) realistic picture of being a small-time entrepreneur in 1970s Finland. Definitely a movie that the Finnish Tourist Agency doesn't want you to see. But you should, because life is hard.
