Under the North Star - Part II

(Täällä Pohjantähden alla II)

Part II of Timo Koivusalo's new adaptation of Väinö Linna's Täällä

Pohjantähden alla covers the final volume of the trilogy. Continued

from Part I seen in April, Akseli Koskela returns from prison camp to

his tenant farm trying to come to terms with the ghosts of the past.

He works for the future of his children and imagines everything

will turn for the better.

The Winter War breaks out. The people torn in two by the Civil

War unite in the face of the common enemy and accomplish the

impossible, but the price is high. Akseli loses his sons before the

Continuation War is over. The country remains free, but Akseli,

now the owner of his land, asks, "What sense was there in

anything if nothing is left"?
