Otto Wille Kuusinen remains among the most disputed characters in Finnish history. He was one of the young nation’s leading Communists, turned traitor to his people by selling out to Stalin, and until he died remained a powerful man, as a member of the USSR’s Politburo, among other things. A prime example of serious, investigative political filmmaking, Von Bagh’s most journalistic work it’s a study of common corruption with an uncommon philosophical edge.
