Helena Maria Reisner,
Everything is going wrong for the well-known comedian Jan Uuspõld - his girlfriend throws him out of their apartment, he's got no job and has pumped everyone he knows for money. So when an acquaintance offers him a role in a notable theatre production Jan is more than happy to take it. The only problem - the theatre where the play is staged lies in Tartu, on the other side of the country. With no money all Jan can do is hitchhike. Will he make it in time? And will he survive all those nuts whom he'll meet on his journey?Written by
This was really misunderstanding... It was showed to us (jury) on Febiofest (film festival in Prague) and I suffered very much... This "comedy" is so cheap in quality, that i had to laugh to it's creators. I tried to find there something deeper (like: movie itself wants to show what's the affection of main role - Jan Uuspõld. Maybe the quality is reasonable...), but without success. Luckily, reputation of Estonian cinematography fixed next film (Magnus) and I don't have to make prejudices about other Estonian movies. I think, that every country has some black spot on it's cinematography, and it was this case.
Please, people, don't destroy your taste and don't risk to watch it.
