“The Kautokeino Rebellion” (2008) movie poster

Powerfully upsetting in its depiction of the oppression and injustices that were committed against the Sámi by the church and state in the 19th century, The Kautokeino Rebellion is a successful and interesting dramatization of true events. Anni-Kristiina Juuso, Mikael Persbrandt, and Bjørn Sundquist give noteworthy performances in this well-acted film. Nils Gaup’s direction is straightforward and restrained. The movie contains beautiful shots of the landscape and nature, and the crisp cinematography effectively captures the cold climate.
