Poetical romance that turns into a frantic dramatic thriller
26 October 2016 | by losindiscretoscineSee all my reviews

In a little known but sumptuous Estonia, we get to know Kertu, a fragile and shy woman whose everyday life is shown as the calm before the storm. It is the second character, Villu, performed by Mait Malmsten, who will turn this poetical romance into a frantic dramatic thriller. "Kertu" is an emotional roller-coaster that through an authentic story and the sober photography, plays with the feelings of the viewers, that are often surprised but never annoyed. This island, both splendid and oppressive, becomes a huis clos, a microcosm that troubles us and, by the use of flashbacks, we are shown a poetical night. It is quite difficult not to be caught by the tenderness of the glances and the close-ups that capture their charm. Each character acts as a catalyst for the other and brings out the best and the worst of each other. Between light and darkness, heaviness and subtlety, in its most bitter violent dialogues and ethereal silences, "Kertu" brings freshness thanks to a story worthy of an ancient drama.
