Present Finland’s most important historical figure C.G.E Mannerheim in some new way and media attention is guaranteed. He and WW II veterans are among the very few holy things that many Finns have.

Today is the tv premier of controversial Mannerheim – the Marshal of Finland movie where the military leader and president is played by a black Kenyan actor Telley Savalas Otieno. Clearly this movie had to be made since it has drawn so much attention for nothing. Jesus has been played by a Finn, so what?

Mannerheim’s significance won’t be reduced even if he’s legacy would be directly attacked so let’s move on to issues that actually matter.
