B-movie with A-acting.
2 July 2017 | by proviantSee all my reviews

Sometimes watching Estonian films I get the feel, like watching some Roger Corman directed movie but with first rate acting and dramatization. Metskapten (Forrest Captain?) is exactly like that - the low budget shines trough in every scene, but director Kalju Komissarov have managed to cleverly hide it as much as possible. The camera angels and settings are in such a way that we get the feel that the action is taking place on enormous cargo ship. The script is tight and well put together.

Of course, who needs some fancy sets and special effects when we have Jüri Järvet - one of the greatest actors of his generation, and I don't mean only in Estonia, but in the whole scene of world cinema (and theater). Here he also give very nuanced and mesmerizing performance as Kihnu Jõnn, and is supported by strong performances which doesn't suffocate each other.

Simply fantastic film. Simple, but striking.
