Good movie about Soviet Estonia orphanage
17 August 2012 | by (Tallinn, Estonia) – See all my reviews

I wanted to write a recommandation here. Naerata ometi (1985) is one of better films about children with problems or/and bad fate. It is technically simple but deeply believable movie. Although themes like alcoholism , bullying, suicide are depressing movie has its humanism and hope for better tomorrow. This is my first review here and i chose this not famous movie to recommend. Other movies i like have a lot of good reviews (movies from Fellini, Chaplin, Satiyait Ray , Kubrick, Renoir and others).

My vote is 10

Ps Movie is hard to find but it is in youtube Sorry for bad English and all the best
