nice little film
17 March 2006 | by henriwrSee all my reviews

It was a few years ago, when a little movie theater in my hometown (Tampere, Finland) showed a few Estonian films on one weekend. They were all directed by Sulev Nõmmik and were subtitled in English. One of these films was Mehed ei nuta/Men don't cry, which I remember was a very funny little comedy and I really enjoyed watching it. On the same weekend they also showed two other Nõmmik's films, Noor Pensionär/Young Pensionar (1972), Siin me oleme/There we are (1979). In the latter film we can also enjoy Nõmmik's talents as an actor.

But these three films are a good reminder of how great comedy filmmaker Nõmmik was. It is so sad that his films never got wider international distribution.
