The movie was produced as a Bachelor of Arts thesis at Tallinn University. As to the budget, the University supported the director with 50 000 EEK (about 4200$).

When I first saw this movie, I expected nothing good of it. Yet, it surprised me somewhat pleasantly. Although it is not very long and doesn't reach Shakespeare-like depth, one can still learn quite a bit from this movie.
Supposedly everyone has seen one or another movie about someone suffering from amnesia. So is the case here. Another oh-my-God-she-is-supposed-to-marry-me-but-hit-her-head kind of movie? No. This style is used in this movie to show us, that opening one's eyes is a good thing and a clean-sheet start can do a lot of good. Unfortunately, the society often distains people, whose conception of the world differs greatly from the mainstream.
The acting of the film is fascinating, actually. Some names, like Ago Anderson and Indrek Ojari are well-known in Estonia and they definitely contribute nicely to the movie. All in all, the performances are well thought through and believable.
A lot of dirty language, straight-up in-your-face attitude and late-teenager-like characters make this movie hilarious just for the kicks of it, so all you Jackass and Dirty Sanchez fans should be pleased just by that. Yet, there is something more to that film. I suppose you have to see it to understand. So please do, you probably won't regret it . And oh, send your little sister out of the room while watching.
