Nipernaadi - A must see movie!
20 May 2003 | by (Tallinn, Estonia) – See all my reviews

When I first saw the movie I was about 13 years old and it didn't impress me much. Later when I read the book (by A. Gailit) I realized that I want to see that movie again. Luckily it was shown on television a few days later and I was given my chance to see it again. When the movie started I realized that: "Yeah! I love that movie! Thank you television-man for showing it to me..." The movie is just perfect. Some little techincal problems could be seen, but they don't jump into your eye. The main thing that attracts you about this movie are the actors and most beautiful music composed for the movie (by R. Kangro and A. Valkonen). The movie is based on a novel by A. Gailit and the story is about an estonian don Juan, who actually is a writer, who leaves home in spring and is brought home again in autumn, by his wife. Toomas Nipernaadi is a mysterious, funny and amusing character who makes strangers fall in love with him and after that he leaves the women not saying a word.

I really recommend it, because it's just perfect. It makes you want to act like Nipernaadi. Go out in spring, only your clothes on, and come back when the first snow covers the landscape.
