"Ranking as Estonia's biggest domestic box office success, Elmo Nuganen's gritty war epic 񓞸" provides a harsh perspective on the country's painful 20th-century history."
– Alissa Simon, Variety
"Breaking box office records back home, Estonia's official Academy Awards entry in the Best Foreign Language Film race is a handsome World War II drama. . . . Director Elmo Nuganen . . . shows a flair for grand-scale spectacle in his polished second feature."
– Stephen Dalton, The Hollywood Reporter

Synopsis

The Battle of Tannenberg Line, second to Stalingrad, the bloodiest conflict on the Eastern Front. Volunteer infantry battalions from Denmark, East Prussia, Flanders, Holland, Norway and Wallonia within the Waffen-SS fight off Soviet Army's thrust at Germany. Half of the SS infantry consists of local Estonian conscripts motivated to resist the looming Soviet re-occupation of their small country. Motivated until they meet their brothers in the Soviet Army. Estonian men, deported by Stalin in 1939, now brought out of Siberian labour camps and returning home in enemy uniforms.
