Interrogation (Kuulustelu) 2009
Director: Jorn Donner
Cinematography: Pirjo Honkasalo
Age: 7 years and up
“Kerttu Nuorteva, a Finnish-born Soviet citizen and spy was dropped into Finland by parachute in February 1942. She operated undercover in Helsinki until September 7th when she was arrested after a mistake she had made. The Interrogation is, as the title reveals, the story about her interrogations that were conducted by three consecutive men. At first, they got no results.
Kerttu, whose true identity was slowly revealed, refused to believe when she was told about the cruelty of Stalin´s killing machinery that also targeted Finns. Little by little, her defenses began to crumble as the World War was irrevocably turning in favor of the Soviet Union. In spite of her cooperation, Kerttu was sentenced to death. She was, however, saved by the ending of the war. This is a film about Kerttu Nuorteva´s difficult and mainly impossible choices.”
