Sisu is a 2022 historical action film written and directed by Jalmari Helander. Set in Finnish Lapland during World War II, the film follows a former legendary Finnish Commando and gold prospector who attempts to secure his stolen gold and defend himself from a German death squad led by a brutal SS officer. The film stars Jorma Tommila, Aksel Hennie, Jack Doolan and Mimosa Willamo.

Originally, Helander was supposed to work on the science fiction comedy Jerry and Ms. Universe as his next project after Big Game, but the COVID-19 pandemic changed Helander's plan and he moved on to make Sisu. The film was shot in 2021 near the Nuorgam village in Lapland with a budget of about € million ($6.5 million). According to Helander, the 1982 film First Blood and the real-life Finnish military sniper Simo Häyhä, who fought against the Red Army, served as great inspirations for the film.

After Finland loses the Continuation War in late 1944, the Soviet Union agrees to end hostilities if all German soldiers are expelled from Finland. This causes the German forces to retaliate against the Finns, leading to the Lapland War.

Retired commando and prospector Aatami Korpi lives alone with only his horse and his faithful Bedlington Terrier in the remote wilderness of Lapland. Aatami spends his days panning and mining in search of gold. He sees battles taking place in the distance, but takes little interest in them. After uncovering a rich gold deposit, he collects a hefty amount of nugget and mounts his horse, heading for the nearest town with his dog in tow.

Aatami Korpi has not been a contender in any CBUB matches.
