Problematic film
3 January 2006 | by margus-kiisSee all my reviews

So many times Rainer Sarnet is called "very talented", "brilliant" by friendly critics, almost genius who's just waiting his chance to do full length movie. And here it is -- first full length movie by Rainer Sarnet. Although made for TV and filmed on video. It's not genius work. The movie is full of problems. Clearly is seen that Sarnet has no good skills to direct actors. All the actors are old professionals but mostly playing like a bunch amateurs. Technical side of the movie is conservative, boring and clumsy. Editing is monotonous. It's not art house cinema but its not entertaining horror movie too. The story is complicated and it is not making director's work easier at all. It 'all about Estonian theater which professionally started 100 years ago. "Libahunt" (Werewolf") is classical Estonian play (also about 100 years old) about conflict between rebellion and conservativeness, youth and older people etc. etc. The play has bloody end and bot most of spectacles are hiding the final shooting scene marking it by audible gunshots and other noises. The movie is basing on legend that two times (in 1900s and 1950s) are attempted to stage the final shooting openly on the stage but always its ended tragically -- male actor are really killed by real bullets. In "Libahundi needus" ("Werewolf's Damnation") young director is trying it third time and starts crazy and tragical mess, where the legend is awakening, female actresses are trying to kill younger ones, some are getting mad, the old stories are shown again and finally the ghost of dead actors are illuminated on the stage of theater. Some questions are answered but most are not. Movie's end is banal and even stupid -- the "damned" show is premiered, nobody is killed and everybody is happy. Except the audience of the movie.
