Storyline

In August, 1991, Estonia reclaims its independence from the USSR and brings to its national bank nearly $1 billion in gold bullion hidden in Paris for 50 years. Russian mobsters have a bold plan to hijack the gold after shutting down the capital's power at midnight. For this they need Toivo, an electrical technician. His wife is pregnant and she urges him to take the job ("$5000 buys lots of baby food"). After Toivo leaves for the plant, his wife goes into labor. Birth and blackout happen simultaneously; the baby needs an incubator, but there's no power. Jealousies within the Mob undercut the plan's smooth operation, and soon the Mob has Toivo to deal with as well. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Nice picture about my city.
22 March 1999 | by Alice BlinneSee all my reviews

Well, I was born in Tallinn, Estonia. I think it's one of the best movies Estonia has ever made. The plot is unusual among traditional Estonian plots; the combination of black-and-white and color is pretty dynamic and very suitable.

A good movie.
