Men Don't Cry (and the don't whine)
31 July 2018 | by SendiTolverSee all my reviews

In some sense 'Men Don't Cry' is the first real Estonian science-fiction movie, as it was filmed and released in 1968, but the story was set in future - in 1973. One can argue, that it barely qualifies as science-fiction, but there are couple of scenes about some experiments that fit perfectly into the sf category.

Group of people suffering from sleeplessness are taken on the island instead of sanitarium they were promised. Soon after arriving on the island, the group of patients discover that they were cheated and start to plan the escape. Absurd and hilarious moments ensue. Almost every line of the dialogue is quotable and funny.

"A sheep consumed our appeal."
