Definitely movie from my personal top 10 of best movies ever. Drama category did not create a better movie and you can now watch for free on Toppmovies. Dome Karukoski has several directorial successes. However, this genre may boast of one of the larger number of popular titles. Special effects, action and characters give this high rating. Great actors and great story. However, I think that well-chosen actors and an interesting script are not pushed to the background by music, because a good movie consists of many great parts. Now sit up and watch, I'm 100% sure, you won't be disappointed.... Show more
