About the movie...
18 January 2004 | by dogma-7See all my reviews

"Baiga vasara" is an attempt to show a dark page of latvian history (By the way, Latvia is a small country in Europe, between Russia and Baltic sea). Unfortunately the the movie is (in my opinion) savourless, because of very short and primitive dialogues. I also dislike sense of humor of this film (the director A. Grauba also directs cheap sitcoms on TV). Overall Latvian movie industry don't have enough finances to make really good movie yet. Talented directors can't get financial support for their ideas. Money for moviemaking gets well-connected people.
