Does it come without the Russian voice over, just with English subtitles?

The DVD have the original Finnish audio with or without the English subtitles. Like any Finnish DVD, they also have Swedish subtitles.

Not working in the Caribbean either. Despite an IP thingy that makes the Swedish TV companies think I am in Sweden.
Seems it is coded for Suomen only?

I got a still picture that seemed correct, plus a text in Finnish, guess it said "not for you tea drinking pesky foreigners"?

What time epoch is it?

"Rauta-aika" is a loose interpretation of the Finnish and Karelian epic poetry Kalevala that combines various elements passed down from the Iron Age and the Middle Ages.

Youtube link?? Would Be so nice

The only thing one can find from YouTube is this behind-the-scenes clip from the official Finnish Defence Forces channel:

I have read Kalevala. Quite interesting, but a bit too long. Just like Homers texts it would need a better editor...:)
Most countries in Europe have similar texts written during the 1800' during the struggles for a national identity and freedom.
I do not know the state of the Finnish language at that time, but I guess it was supressed by both the Swedes and the Russians, just like the Czech and Moravian languages were by the Austrians?

Those authors did a huge favour for later generations.

Most of the authors took local legends and mixed a bit of Greeko/Roman mythology,

While Kalevala as a work of art was edited and published by Lönnrot between 1835 and 1849, Finnish epic poetry in trochaic tetrameter was first written down in 1564.

Finnish didn't become the official language alongside Swedish and Russia in Grand Duchy of Finland until 1863.

I can imagine they had the same difficulties in creating the "proper" Finnish language and grammar as the Czechs.
Only peasants, maids and farm workers spoke Czech, educated people spoke German. The Czech language was word poor until they started rejuvenating it in the mid to late 1800' or thereabouts.

The Father of Schooling was a Czech, Jan Amoš Komensky. Invented basically the schoolbook in the own language ( nstead of Latin).
Unfortunately during his life the Czech language got demoted to a third rate language due to the Hapsburgs taking power there.

It is a good way to force a people to its knees, removing their language and national identity.
