On a summer evening, four strangers are brought together by a mysterious murder A case which at first seems like a regular crime ivestigation turns out to be much more: a tale of love, alienation and new hope, reflecting a society in the midst of transforming. The film is giving international audiences a ew, stylish perspective on the Baltics where people in their bold new clothes and luxury cars are trying to imitate Western life but are still trapped in corruption, greed and abuse of women.Written by
In the guise of a thriller, an interesting landscape of psychological conflict is revealed. A young girl, psychologically abused by her wealthy patron doesn't know of any other life. Another woman, trapped in her marriage to a rogue cop, is plotting her escape. "Set Point" captures the new wave of Estonian women, upwardly mobile, impassioned with luxury and fashion, in an existential tone, the camera focusing on details in rooms empty and soulless in the Gothic city of Tallin. The film would have benefited if the cinematographer had created a film noir effect, a city painted with sinister light.
The director has effectively created a claustrophobic world, a reflection of the characters who are trapped in the fantasies of their own creation. The renown Estonian model, Carmen Kass, in the role of Alice, is convincing in her fresh interpretation of the kept girl---a girl who for the first time, is discovering love.
