This movie is about the Estonian War of Independence (1918-1920), specifically the students fighting on the nationalist side, but also shown the conflict between two ideologies (Estonian nationalism and communism).
Okay. This movie is pretty controversial at the comedy part. I have now seen it twice and the first time I saw it, the crowd was laughing the entire time. The second time I saw it, the crowd laughed a whole lot less. So. In my opinion, this movie isn't the cleverest comedy but there are still some jokes that are hilarious (the ending for example).
But now. I just have to say this. The animation is freaking gorgeous! It looks truly amazing. Hats off to whoever was responsible for the props and sets.
So... even if you don't like the plot, I think you will admire the animation.
