In this episode of the podcast, our American host Zach will share his thoughts with the Finnish hosts Karri and Henrik on the Finnish film 'The Unknown Soldier' from 2017. Why is the film so important to Finns? What is the identity of Aku Louhimies' version of 'The Unknown'? Which version is 'the best' - 1955, 1985 or the 2017 film? Is the question impossible to answer? Henrik has some gargantuan thoughts on this one. Karri gets the non-Finns up to speed with his super quick and simplified overview of the Finnish Winter War and Continuation War.

Hosted by Zachary Byrd, Karri Ojala and Henrik Telkki. Edited by Karri Ojala. The Flick Lab theme tune written and performed by Nick Grivell.
