Storyline

"Where The Heart Is" is based on the stories of an Estonian writer Oskar Luts. It is the year 1942. After the Reds retreat, the German regime has taken over Estonia. Despite the change of power, human nature remains the same - they love, party, quarrel and reconcile. Our romantic comedy starts with the return of Arno Tali's son, Arnold. This blows up a passionate love triangle between the young people of Paunvere.

Not a great round-up of the tetralogy, but no flop either
1 November 2020 | by BeneCumbSee all my reviews

One can definitely argue several aspects here, starting with the need for it and possible twisting of Oskar Luts´s grasps and ideas, but the approach is pleasant, performances good, and the beautiful scenery emphasizes the mood of "good old days" - in spite of World War II around. True, in Talve, the main characters are the young trying to live and dream within the present German and previous Soviet occupation, the older generations are in the background, with Harry Kõrvits as Ollep being an interesting and mostly humorous addition...

Talve is apparently not a film for wider international audience, but Finns and Latvians might find something in common at least. Particularly, if they have seen Kevade, Suvi and Sügis as well.

8 for performances, 6 for script = 7.
